"Beware Officer Friendly...." New Zealand Favorite Tip by kenmerk

New Zealand General: 357 reviews and 324 photos


Favorite thing: Don't do as I do... When driving in NZ always maintain the proper speed limit...

Somewhere north of Wellington, (a town called "Bulls" perhaps??) I was reminded of this by the local law enforcement officer.

It was rather humorous because, after giving me my citation, he started to rag on the local drivers, i.e. "These kiwi driver's are crazy", "They'll kill you, you know", "...and you can't sue them here...." "yes, sir, yes, sir, yes sir, thank you sir...." An enlightening experience which only cost me $80.00 NZD's...
