    Re: Can someone explain why this test question was wrong?

    Like others have said, uncontrolled junction, give way to right (no matter what). However if "Y" is at the top, turning into the same road as "X" at the bottom, then "Y" will have the right of way in Australia, but "X" will have the right of way in NZ Cool

    Recently I came up onto a junction similar to this and is bi-directional but is controlled by traffic lights. Unfortunately the traffic lights broke down and it was peak hour traffic, so all the lanes are packed full with vehicles trying to cross and give way to each other. I survived!

    The "give way to right" not only applies to intersenctions......when merging onto motorways & when two lanes merge into one without the dividing line indicating which lane ends the give way to right also applies. Wink

    Interestingly "Colregs" (Colisions Regulations) for boating also adhere to the "Give way to right" as well......i.e. a boat approaching on your starboard side has right of way over you (that is unless it is a larger less manouverable vessel than yours).

    pyrah:

     Does steam still have to give way to sail

    Wasn't aware of that one (I'll have to go look it up Embarrassed), but basically the less manouverable vessel in the situation has right of way

    Rule 3b of the col regs states "power-driven vessel" means any vessel propelled by machinery.

    Rule 18a of the col regs states that a power-driven vessel underway shall keep out of the way of a sailing vessel

    so, yes pyrah, in general steam has to give way to sail.  The main exception to this is where a sail boat is overtaking ...

    Rule 13a of the col regs states that any vessel overtaking any other shall keep out of the way of the vessel being overtaken

    ciao,  Mike

    So is there a 'give way to those above you' rule or a'give way to those below you' rule or is it simply a 'give way to the one with the biggest torpedoes'. May be we should have that at intersections. I know I have felt a flame thrower attached to the front of my scoot would be a valuable and usefull addition!

    Actually, if you interpret the colregs a little more you will discover that the less manouverable boat has right of way!

     

    The original question, the answer in QLD is covered by s72 of the Transport Operations (Road Use Management—Road Rules) Regulation which is based on the Australia Road Rules s72. Given most states base their road rules and the Australian Road Rules you will also likely find it under s72 in other states!

     

    Australia Road Rules s72 (3)

    If the driver is going straight ahead, the driver must give
    way to any vehicle approaching from the right, unless a stop
    sign, stop line, give way sign or give way line applies to the
    driver of the approaching vehicle.
