Yes, I once saw a road sign in Manila that said "Road rules strictly enforced on this road". The implication - and the reality - being that road rules were not enforced on other roads. Or on that road either, apparently, judging from the 10 lanes of chaos around me. NZ drivers are bad, but we're far from the worst.

I hate the NZ give way rule too - it works so much better everywhere else.


I think you might be right here - it may also be the other way around - take Molesworth St for example - if I go through the first set of lights first at least motorists stopped at the red light can see me.
