Here are my observations of the rules people seem to follow when driving in this fair city. How can one city produce so many useless drivers.
- Giving way to the right at unmarked intersections and roundabouts only applies if your car is smaller than the other one.
- Indicating when turning (especially on roundabouts) or merging is optional.
- Merging into the adjacent lane is fine at all times as long as your car is bigger than the one alongside yours. Looking in mirrors and shoulder checks aren’t needed.
- When reversing out of a carpark, you must never give way to traffic.
- If you are elderly, it is fine to drive everywhere at 20km under the speed limit.
- If there are two P-plate drivers next to each other at traffic lights, you must race each other.
- In the fog, it’s safer to speed because the reduced visibility means cops can’t spot you. Also, don’t turn your lights on so others can be aware of your presence.
- If someone is on a bicycle, you are encouraged to swerve towards them for a laugh.
