More Info →"Every Picture Tells a Story" Collision with New Roundabout

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 10 October, 1959. "And this one tells a story of how a motorist was driving along Church Street, possibly during the hours of darkness and was unaware that a round-about had recently been installed at the Princess Street intersection. The photographed evidence of skid marks on the road showed the motorist did eventually notice the new island, but too late. He ploughed through the newly-sown turf and knocked the "keep left" sign aside as he went. The moral of the story could possibly be that the motorist now knows the round-about is there and will observe it in the future."
