573 the usual Chaytor/Raroa experience. Driver exited Raroa without checking the buslane was clear. The driver was encouraged to cross because of the poor road design where a no-stopping zone actively encourages drivers to cross the road and gives them priority of traffic that has right of way -41.284734735069, 174.75415812641 Bicycle Vehicle pulls out or across cyclist

559 This is an incident I witnessed (as a pedestrian) but was not involved in.

A car attempted to back out of angle parking space between the bus stop on the Parade near shops/ Medway street and backed into a car travelling past the Medway street intersection, travelling North. Both were at low speeds due to the amount of traffic.

After the accident, the car travelling north attempted to stop to talk to reversing driver but decided to just stop in the traffic flow (but as far left as she could) and put hazard lights on. This meant that traffic behind (including at least 3 cyclists) was required to pull into the opposite Yu traffic lane to pass at this busy street.
