The Australian Road Rule 73 regarding drivers turning into roads giving way to pedestrians crossing or about to cross that road. I have checked with the ACT Govt representative and the rule is applicable in the ACT. Not one person (driver) I have asked knows of this rule.
I regularly walk to work from Hughes to Woden and cross, amongst others Easty Street. This street leads to the car parks just east of the Woden offices / shops. I have had many ‘run-ins’ with drivers when I attempt to cross this street (on foot).
I have had enough. Next week I’m going to ‘placard’ the corner from 7 till 8.30, hopefully some drivers will become wiser.
All the best, Mark Conley
