Not Being A Leftie


On one day 54 drivers were photographed driving on the wrong side of the road in the Manawatu Gorge during a five hour period. Eventually the battery on the camera went flat!

“What part of driving on the left do not understand?”

That’s the question being posed by Central District’s Road Policing Manager, Inspector Neil Wynne, during an operation in which offenders were filmed.

“One person coming around the bend at the wrong time and the consequences don’t bear thinking about. We’re not talking a smidgen over the lines we are talking the entire vehicle on the wrong side of the road!”

At least two of the vehicles caught on camera belonged to health professionals. Drivers now face fines and demerits.

    maybe some painted arrows and guardrails sperating the road would help.
