Where do I start?
They think an indicator column is an optional extra based on the extreme lack of use of the indicator - it is a rare event to see indicating or correct indicating here. You take your life in your hands negotiating a roundabout, its like a game of Russian roulette.
They have an obsession with rear bumpers based on the pandemic tailgating.
They can not decipher those funny signs with numbers on based on the very common 30+ over the posted speed limit.
They think its their right to use the roads as a race track throughout the day and especially in the early hours of the morning and call themselves "car enthusiasts" the rest of the planet calls them boy/girls racers.
Give way rules? what give way rules?
They think its foggy EVERY night, my observations about 40% of the cars at night have the fog lights on despite it being a clear night and in a street lit area, the real geniuses only have the fog lights on.
They think its cool to replace the exhaust and silencer with a dustbin - it is seriously hard to tell the difference between a car and a low flying aircraft with the ear splitting noise, despite the laws here the police are completely inept.
I learnt to drive in UK and was truely shocked at the appalling standard of driving in NZ, been here for many years now and still amazed at it.
I can guarantee that every journey I make by car I will see speeding, tailgating and non-indicating, often it is all from the same vehicle.
Stephen Fry was in NZ recently, when asked "What do you like least about New Zealand?" part of his response - "I have to say, after America, you're the worst drivers I've had to cope with."
I cant comment on US drivers but it's awful here.
