Intersection safety

Bad calls can be deadly. Do the right thing at intersections.

 Intersection crashes are a major road safety problem in the Nelson region. Police crash reports show that over two thirds of intersection crashes in Nelson Bays were caused by drivers either failing to give way, failing to stop or poor observation. Nelson City Council, Tasman District Council, and the New Zealand Transport Agency - bring you the following information on intersection crashes, black spots, roundabout use, and general road safety. And remember to always be aware of cyclists moving through intersections and roundabouts.
