    Must for motorists and bi-moto-cyclists to know

    Bi-cyclyists and Motor-cyclists are compelled by the following edicts
    I rarely see evidence of compliance:

    http://www.legislation.govt.nz/regul...est/whole.html


    Passing
    2.6 General requirements about passing other vehicles

    (1) A driver must not pass or attempt to pass another vehicle moving in the same direction unless—

    (a) the movement can be made with safety; and

    (b) the movement is made with due consideration for other users of the road; and

    (c) sufficient clear road is visible to the driver for the passing movement to be completed without impeding or being likely to impede any possible opposing traffic; and

    (d) until the passing movement is completed, the driver has a clear view of the road and any traffic on the road for at least 100 m in the direction in which the driver is travelling.

    (2) Subclause (1)(c) and (d) does not apply if the passing vehicle and the vehicle being passed are in different lanes and are, throughout the passing movement, either on a one-way road or on the same side of the centre line.

    (3) A driver must not, when passing another vehicle moving in the same direction, move into the line of passage of that vehicle until the manoeuvre can be made safely and without impeding the movement of that other vehicle.

    Compare: SR 1976/227 r 8(3), (4)

    2.7 Passing on right

    A driver must not pass or attempt to pass on the right of another vehicle moving in the same direction when—

    (a) approaching or crossing an intersection unless—

    (i) the roadway is marked in lanes and the driver can make the movement without the driver's vehicle encroaching on a lane available for opposing traffic; or

    (ii) in any other case, the driver can make the movement with safety and with due consideration for users of the intersecting road; or

    (b) approaching or passing a flush median, unless the driver—

    (i) intends to turn right from the road marked with the flush median into another road or vehicle entrance; or

    (ii) has turned right onto the road marked with the flush median; or

    (iii) can make the entire movement without encroaching on the flush median.

    Compare: SR 1976/227 r 8(2), (2A)

    2.8 Passing on left

    (1) A driver must not pass or attempt to pass on the left of another vehicle moving in the same direction except in accordance with this clause.

    (2) In any case in which the movement referred to subclause (1) may be made,—

    (a) the 2 vehicles must be in different lanes; or

    (b) the overtaken vehicle must be stationary or its driver must have given or be giving the prescribed signal of that driver's intention to turn right; or

    (c) if the overtaken vehicle is a light rail vehicle moving in the same direction, the light rail vehicle must not be—

    (i) signalling an intention to turn left or to stop; or

    (ii) stationary for the purposes of allowing passengers to alight or board.

    (3) If the roadway is marked in lanes, the driver may make the movement referred in subclause (1) only if the driver's vehicle does not encroach on a lane that is unavailable to a driver.

    Compare: SR 1976/227 r 8(1)

    Sharing lanes

    Because vehicles, including motorcycles, need a full lane in which to operate safely, they shouldn't share lanes with other vehicles.

    As a motorcycle rider, there are things you can do to prevent lane-sharing:

    You should stay in line and move with the rest of the traffic when in a line of traffic that has stopped or slowed - don't ride between rows of traffic or try to squeeze past a stopped vehicle in the same lane. This also gives you time and space to react if something happens, such as a vehicle door opening or a vehicle turning suddenly.
    Discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane by moving toward the centre of the lane in a situation where other drivers might try to squeeze by you. These situations include:
    heavy bumper-to-bumper traffic
    when you are preparing to turn at an intersection, enter an exit lane or leave the road
    when another driver wants to pass you
    when you are stopped at traffic lights.

    Don't pass or ride in the emergency stopping areas on motorways.

    What was the point of this post?

    I might start a thread on a car forum about staying left unless overtaking, I'll quote the law there as well.

    I'll lane split whenever I want, but that is for your concern safir.

    Meh, most bikers operate on the logic of "anything is legal until I get sprung or run down" so quoting a section of the law is entirely superfluous.

    And no, you don't get a gold star for proving you can do "cut and paste" since that is sooooo 1994
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    I would not have to lanes plot if all motorists kept left. Perhaps a better law would be to permit us to carry lump hammers, but only allowed to use them with the left hand.

    Fuckers keep left then.

    Note: as sometimes cager I think I do a pretty good job of keeping left... Except when I see a lanesplitter approaching on my left.
