I decided to take a walk earlier and get out of the house, was walking down my local neighbourhood street and nearly witnessed an accident... There's a fairly main road running through although it is a 40 km/hr zone through this particular strip, and this car is coming towards me down this road on the opposite side of the street (his left, my right), when a car just pulls out of a side street on my side of the street turning right straight into the oncoming cars path, ie both cars intend to travel south of the page and I'm working towards the top on the left hand side. -------- | The car travelling straight through tooted and the 'red' car slammed on the brakes at the last minute in the middle of the road and finally gave way. But whats really scary is this older guy (about 65) is walking towards me and says "did you see that" I said "yeah the guy didn't giveway"...he says "no, the red car had right of way coz there's NO GIVEWAY SIGN"??? I couldn't believe what I was hearing, I said mate its a side street, the give way is assumed....he said "you don't know the law, if there's no give way sign you don't have to give way, so the oncoming car has to give way to its right" I walked off shaking my head :roll: I really hope I don't come across this guy driving while I'm on my bike :?
