The New Give Way Rule

Should it be given away?

In fact, just the other day I was with a pupil driving, to the Sockburn Testing Station on state highway 73A. We were about to turn left into Symes Road when two vehicles decided that the old give way rule suited them better! This caused my client to brake quite sharply..... Now I may be cynical, but I do think they knew what they were doing. One was a truck driver and the other, a commercially sign written ute.... both must be on the road a few hours a week. So, what could possibly be the reason for not following the new rules?
Just in case anyone is still not sure, the best way I remember the give way rule is that the vehicle which is closest to the bend goes first and when you encounter an unmarked 'T' intersection, treat it like a controlled intersection.....
