I was surprised I knew most of these rules

The one I partially did not know:

— Motorists, passengers and cyclists must not lead an animal, including by tethering the animal to the motor vehicle.

I see that one broken all the time, big fast dogs can travel much faster then a human, not sure how you would exercise them properly otherwise.



Motorists = out the window of a car.
Passengers = out the window of a car.
Cyclists = whilst riding a bike and or motorcycle.

It has SFA to do with them being walked by a person on foot.

People who can run with their dogs do...

those that can't walk.

Walks are still exercise.

Braking is largely automatic. Autopilot, if you will. You don't want to invent weird rules about not doing it until you have done something else.

Many use a bike see it all the time, the only other way would be to have two fast big dogs chase each other. These dogs need to stretch out it relaxes them.
I guess it makes sense to be illegal as it is dangerous.

It's fun on a skateboard. The dog can basically tow you round.

A lot of WA drivers don't know the local rules regarding u-turns at traffic lights.

It's pretty simple, though: you must NOT make a u-turn at traffic lights (unless there is a ‘U-turn permitted’ sign).

From memory there are only about 3 or 4 sets of traffic lights in Perth that have ‘U-turn permitted’ signs.

Despite that, you see drivers doing it at traffic lights everywhere, every day.

Yes saw one yesterday ... down the road from me there's a set of lights ... which of course has double white lines a certain distance back from the stop line.

I see people constantly crossing those double white lines in one direction in front of the lights to enter  a service station .... instead of going around the corner.

The double white lines were put there because a motorbike rider who came around the left hand corner with right of way was killed by an idiot right turning into the service station just prior to the intersection.

It boils my p1ss.

That's a pet hate of mine.
The car in front of you brakes........you have no idea what's going on....then at the last minute they put their indicator on.

Or bogans who don't indicate at all

I am living in a ghost town.

It has streets and houses but no people (well bugger all) I found myself not indicating at a corner,,,, made me shudder.

I got better.

A question on road use.

Two cars coming in opposite directions to a stop sign.

One car is turning left the other turning right.

Who has right of way?

Usually the one turning left, but what if the one turning right has stopped and the one turning left has not stopped yet.

If the one who has already stopped does not have right of way,,,, why have stop signs, just use give way signs?????

Give way does not mean if you get there at exactly the same time. It means don't get in the way. If you get there early enough to get through without blocking them, then you are still giving them way.

I have never seen an intersection where all entrances (or more than one) has a 'Give Way,' sign.

I particularly like the rule that says if you walk away from your car without locking it you can be fined.

This is the level to which our Lord's and masters have sunk.

Don't chase criminals, chase the people with money to pay fines.

Why do you think they have all these holiday speed blitzes???

Because the grubberment know that WORKERS take time off and will pay the fines

Whereas, normal bunnies driving around have a much lower cash revenue recovery because many are too broke to pay fines.

It's all about the cash, nothing else.

The other one is some don't put an indicator on at lights but when the light goes green on it comes.
Its like people think if they use their indicator too much they will break or some other weird theory.

Yes Couriers hate that one not sure about the rationale ...... leaving the door unlocked can save you money. My brother in law's work van they smashed his window to steal about $5 of coins in the ash tray. Car security is a myth.
