    On another note, you recently wanted to know where it was legal to run
    over pedestrians and found that they were fair game at slip roads. The
    WA Road Safety Council has been publishing adds in the paper under the
    heading of "Street Smarts". Last weeks said

    Giving way to Pedestrians.
    Drivers and riders must give way to pedestrians (including people in
    wheelchairs) who are:

    Crossing at an intersection in front of a turning vehicle:

    Crossing at a pedestrian (Zebra) or children's crossing:

    Crossing at a marked foot crossing (traffic signal controlled crossing
    for vehicles and pedestrians lights for pedestrians) when a light
    facing vehicles is flashing yellow or red: or

    Crossing in front of your vehicle at a slip lane (i.e. a left turn
    lane at an intersection where there is an island between that lane and
    lanes for other traffic).

    So no, you can't run over pedestrians in a slip lane, regardless of
    whether the slip lane has a marked crossing or not. You are a turning
    vehicle and turning vehicles must give way to pedestrians.
