From my observations of driver behaviour in this community it seems that motorists either don't know about the law change, or are deliberately choosing a path of non-compliance. In November 2009 the Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004 was modified to state that a driver approaching a pedestrian crossing must give way to pedestrians, and to riders of wheeled recreational devices or mobility devices, who are on the pedestrian crossing; or who are obviously waiting to cross it; and if necessary, slow down and stop the driver's vehicle for that purpose. This rule includes pedestrians who are waiting to cross the pedestrian crossing from either side of the road - unless the road is divided by a raised traffic island. If that's the case then the road on different sides of that traffic island are regarded as separate pedestrian crossings. Drivers in those situations need only stop and give way to pedestrians crossing or waiting to cross their side of the road. So, for example, imagine you are driving to work in the morning, and you see children walking to school who are crossing the road from your right to left. There are no student operated (lollipop) signs in operation and no traffic islands. Once those children are waiting to cross the road, you are required by law to stop and give way. Police invest a lot of time and effort educating children on how to use roads safely. Motorists who fail to obey the law and thereby place children at risk can undo all of that good work. Police would prefer that drivers comply with the law for the sake of keeping children safe, rather than having to resort to issuing tickets for non-compliance.
