Please take the time to familiarise yourself with New Zealand driving road safety rules.

 

 
Keep LEFT. Drive on the LEFT. Park on the LEFT. Remember to remain on the LEFT after parking or pulling over.

 

Which Side?
Keep Left.
Drive on the left side of the road.
Exceptions: one way streets.

Parking and Pulling Over?
Keep Left.

REMEMBER to remain on the left hand side when returning to the road after parking or pulling over to a stop.
Always park on the left hand side of the road with the exception of one way streets.

2 cars at + intersection.
Going Straight Through
When going straight through at an intersection, you must give way to:
All vehicles coming straight through from your right.

 

 

 

Both cars turning into same road
Turning right at an uncontrolled intersection
If you are turning right and the opposing vehicle is turning left, you must give way.

 

 

 

Turning left onto T intersection
When turning left at an intersection, you must give way to:
All Vehicles coming straight through from your Right.

 

 

 

Turning right at T intersection
When turning right at an intersection, you must give way to:
All vehicles coming straight through from your left.

 

 

 

Turning right at T intersection
When turning right at an intersection, you must give way to:
All Vehicles coming straight through from your Right.

 

 

 

Turning right from main road
When turning right at an intersection, you must give way to:
All Vehicles coming straight towards you.

 

 

 

Turning right from main road
At an uncontrolled T-intersection, all traffic from a terminating road (bottom of the T) should now give way to all traffic on a continuing road (top of the T).
Think: Top of the T goes before me.

 

 

 

Neither vehicle has to give way
Two Vehicles coming towards each other and turning right
When two vehicles are coming towards each other at an intersection and both are turning right, NO ONE HAS TO GIVE WAY.
This is because neither vehicle will cross the other's path. Both vehicles can therefore turn safely.

 

 

 

Leaving the path of the centre line? Give way.
Leaving the path of the centre line
If you are leaving the path of the centre line, you must give way to vehicles following the centre line.
Vehicles leaving the path of the centre line are said to be turning.
Therefore the GIVE WAY rules apply.
