important DRiving information
In New Zealand we drive on the LEFT HAND SIDE of the road. To remind you put a sticker or a toy on the left hand side of the dash board of your car.
DRIVING ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD CAN BE FATAL
If you find yourself behind a slow moving vehicle---BE PATIENT. Only pass when it is 100% safe to do so.
If you look in your rear view mirror and see there is a long line of traffic behind you, pull over when it is safe to do so, and let them pass
You must have a current appropriate license for the vehicle that you are driving on your person at all times.
You must show it to a Police Officer if requested
Sometimes when driving,you can meet farmers moving their stock along roads and highways.If this happens ,take directions from the farmer and move slowly through the herd, or, just park and enjoy this unique New Zealand experience.
