The draft Land Transport (Road user) Amendment Rule  is available for comment.
The main proposal is to change the give-way rules at uncontrolled intersections or when opposing signals or signs are the same to simplify decision making at intersections and improve safety.
Other proposals in the amendment Rule will either:
- be necessary as a consequence of changing the give-way rules
- align road user requirements with other legislation, or
- strengthen and clarify provisions on existing road user requirements.
- Apply bus signal provisions to riders of motorcycles, mopeds and cycles using a special vehicle lane
Submissions close at 5pm on 24 June 2011.
