At the intersection of Trugood Drive and Cryers Road, East Tamaki, you can either turn left or right. Most traffic turns right to go to the Highbrook onramp of the motorway. People generally wait patiently to turn right, however, there is an increasing number of impatient, inconsiderate drivers who bypass this by turning left, doing a u-turn and then driving straight down Cryers Road, causing a hinderance to the traffic waiting to turn right. This causes longer delays for patient drivers who are trying to do the right thing. At the other end of Trugood Drive where it intersects with Ti Rakau Drive, it is a free left turn or a traffic light controlled right turn. In the evenings, people wait patiently to turn left, but others bypass this, going through the lights when they go green to turn right - by turning left and causing near misses because the person legally turning left, is not expecting anyone to be coming from the right, as all traffic is stopped from that direction. Police have been notified about both ends of Trugood Drive, but the Council needs to do something about it, as it is getting worse.
