Road rage? You ain't seen nuthin' yet

In a week where the face of Kiwi road policing was killed by someone knocking him for six off his bike, this is topical.
New laws hit drivers with tough three-demerit-point penalties and fines of $342 if their cars drift into special bicycle waiting zones to be installed at many intersections across the metropolitan area.

Soon we will have only bus lanes and a pole position allocated area for cyclists. There will be nary a private car or truck in sight.

When this arrives, then we will see full-on road rage as those who pay for the roads are further restricted from using them.
