Kiwis are crap drivers.... at last someone admits it

Article from Stuff quoting the the editor of New Zealand Driver magazine as saying we are a "nation of lousy drivers".

I put my hand up there and admit to be being one, too.

The difference is that I know my limitations and I take the view that my car is not some super fancy way of showing how macho I am but a bloody heavy blunt force trauma on wheels.

Compared to many of my compatriots on the road, I show excessive caution and I get my fair share of abuse for it. But I will gladly suffer that. Having been a bystander to accident where an elderly pedestrian was literally pulverised by a speeding car, I am happy to be on the receiving end of abuse than to see someone get killed up close again.
