Road rule changes for Westies

On 25 March 2012 the Give Way Rules changed. Since so few drivers understand them, especially out West where we hear they’ve been having fearsome problems, we offer this simple guide to assist the average Westie to understand who gives way to whom. [“Whom”? Who says “whom” in Henderson?]

The red Mk IV Cortina gives way to the green Mk IV Cortina.

Whereas the Purple Holden Ute used to have right of way over the Blue Holden Ute.

Real cars will continue to have right of way over Japanese cars.

clip_image004

Holden will never give way to Ford, and vice versa, leading to collisions whenever they meet.

clip_image005

Trucks will continue to have right of “weigh” because they weigh more.

clip_image006

With some exceptions. Here above the rubbish truck is heavier, but must be overtaken or it will hold up traffic which is a crime against God and nature.

clip_image007

Buses weigh a lot, but, being a form of public transport of course never get right of way.

Note how all these drivers cooperate to ensure there is no gap the bus can push into.

clip_image008

Classic cars have right of way, so the Holden gives way to the Jag XK120.

clip_image009

Ford Capri claims classic status but Holden Ute gains right of way because the Capri has been painted pink….and it’s a Ford.

clip_image010

Holden HZ gains right of way over Holden SS V not because it is a classic but because the SS driver is more worried about scratching his paint work.

clip_image011

Citroen DS claims right of way as a classic, but no one ever gives way to the French.

clip_image012

Real classics claim right of way over not really classics like this 1980s Rover 3500

clip_image013

Time machine gets right of way over everything, except…

clip_image014

Magnum PI, because nothing holds up that moustache [See Ferrari refutes the Decline of the West, in Republican Party Reptile, P J O'Rourke].

clip_image015

Ordinary cars give way to a police car.

clip_image016

Traffic police will continue to give way to real police trying to catch Sheryl West.

clip_image017

Police cars still give way to ambulances.

clip_image018

I guess if two ambulances meet they both have right of way and collide. Cool…

clip_image019

Then you’d have to send a really BIG ambulance!

clip_image020

So in summary the green piece of tinfoil and glad wrap origami on the left gives way to the green Japanese piece of tinf…oh who cares, Westies never admit to driving Japanese.
