A report on ‘Stuff’ today quotes a District Court Judge as saying tourist driving is appalling.
An Indian tourist clocked doing 160kmh and crossing the centre line at least 20 times on a southern road highlights the ongoing battle faced by authorities trying to get foreigners to drive to New Zealand conditions, a district court judge says.
Figures released by the NZ Transport Agency show the proportion of fatal accidents involving drivers with an overseas licence has increased.
Nothing seems to get the blood boiling as much as the other people’s driving. I’m no exception. The only comment I will make is that, as a migrant from the UK, I still look forward to driving in England where I find the driving, especially on the motorways, disciplined and courteous.
What do you think? Are tourists worse drivers than Kiwis?
Should we be putting out the 'Unwelcome Mat' for tourists?
