      Just remember...that even if you think you have a handle on the new Give Way rule, the other person may not.

      Being Vigilant is the key.

      Don't be worried about tomorrow. Everyone will be attentive. It's the days and weeks that follow that are the real concern as people's vigilance drops and reflexes take over. Those 10 and 20 year old driving reflexes..

      Yep, just like when youre first learning to drive. Every intersection youre thinking "who gives way", after a few months it becomes habit/instinct and you stop thinking. Im predicting next weekend is when the accidents will happen....you may have learnt the new rules, but has your subconcious?..

      No one knew what the old ones were. How will a rule change make ANYTHING different from the "watch out for myself first" MO you should be using?
