Changes to turning at intersections take effect in just over two weeks.
And despite fears about confusion reigning on the roads, a survey of 6000 Automobile Association members shows the changes to make driving safer have support. When similar changes were adopted in Victoria, Australia, in 1993, they resulted in a 7.1 per cent drop in crashes at intersections.
The AA survey found that most respondents felt police should not start issuing tickets for one to threemonths after the new rules were introduced.
The new rules start from 5am on Sunday, March 25.
