Basic road rules in South Australia

    [h=3]Basic road rules in South Australia

     

    1. Indicating will give away your next move. A real

    South Australian driver never uses them.

     

    2. Under no circumstance should you leave a safe distance

    between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled by

    at least, two utes, a Falcon and a Commodore, putting you in an even

    more dangerous situation.

     

    3. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller

    the chance you have of getting hit.

     

    4. Never, ever come to a complete stop at a stop sign. No

    one expects it and it will only result in you being rear-ended.

     

    5. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to

    ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving you a nice, relaxing foot massage

    as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance

    to stretch your legs.

     

    6. Never pass on the right when you can pass on the left.

    It's a good way to check if the people entering the highway are awake.

     

    7. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as a

    guideline. They are especially not applicable in South Australia during rush

    hour. That's why it's called 'rush hour....’

     

    8. Just because you're in the right lane and have no room

    to speed up or move over doesn't mean that a South Australian driver flashing his

    high beams behind you doesn't think he can go faster in your spot.

     

    9. Always slow down and rubberneck when you see an

    accident or even someone changing a tyre. Never stop to help.

     

    10. Learn to swerve abruptly. South Australia is the home of the

    high-speed slalom driving thanks to SAPOL, which

    puts holes in key locations to test drivers' reflexes and keeps them on

    their toes.

     

    11. It is traditional in South Australia to honk your horn at

    cars that don't move the instant the light turns green. This prevents

    birds from building nests on top of the traffic lights and

    making deposits on your car.

     

    12. Remember that the goal of every South Australian driver is to

    get there first, by whatever means necessary.

     

    13. On average, at least three cars can still go through

    an intersection after the light has turned red. It's people not adhering

    to this basic principle that causes the big traffic jams during rush

    hour.[/h]

    Very true, but also don't forget to stop at the end of a slip road even if there is plenty of room to go causing the car behind to do an emergency stop. And when driving down a road with a slip road onto it, never give way to those on the slip road, infact speed up so that the person cannot get off said slip road!

    I guess this just goes to show that wherever you are in the world, driving looks uniquely bad in that place ... until you google a few words from something like this and see the same list for just about everywhere! I wonder who it is who can actually be bothered to sit there cutting and pasting different country/region names into these things in order to personalise them?

    this is one thing i see every day, often on the merge lane from seacombe road onto brighton road i pull out and go around others who have chosen to stop and wait on the merge lane.
