Here and settled
Just driven back from Clare today - luckily we didn't have any rain yesterday, just the strong winds and so only had to cope with it in daylight hours today. Driving standards from Gawler south was dreadful, cars were travelling far too close and fast and spraying huge cutains of water as they rushed past (we were only a couple of Kms under the speed limit in torrential rain with our lights on)

It's not so much the wet, darkness, white lines, cat's eyes or oil on the road - it's the idiots who drive far too fast, far too close and far too dangerously that are the problem.
man, now I am getting even more worried. Dark AND rain, that might just be the end of us. Coming from the US, we are already going to be fighting to keep the car on the "right" side of the road. Like another member has recomended, we had better just stick to daytime driving (or driving when plenty of other traffic is around to follow) until driving on the left side of the road becomes more natural. The good news is that I hear the police are very lenient and understanding about even significant driving infractions, so that will help until we get the hang of it, right?????????
PS, buying our tickets this weekend. october 20 is the date. looking froward to finally meeting some of you guys in person before the year is out.
I agree that driving in heavy rain, day or night, can be quite scary here. The white lines just disappear, which on a straight two lane road isn’t too much of a problem but throw in a bend or kink here and there and it’s easy to lose your lane, especially if you’re in the middle lane.
I also find that old road markings that have been painted over in black often stand out more than the white lines in the rain or when the ground is still wet and the sun’s out. I’ve seen drivers accidentally change lanes numerous times as they are trying their hardest to follow their lane markings. Grand Junction Road I’m talking about you.
Ditto about not noticing there were no cats eyes until I read this post.
There are cats eyes on our roads..........................i saw two pairs today...............both cats were dead though...
