Worse tourist drivers
Is Simon Bridges, the garbled grammar aside, deliberately misleading New Zealanders about the proportionate risks posed by foreign drivers?
The average tourist driver spends a couple of weeks each year on our roads. The average New Zealand driver about 50 weeks.
To compare one with the other in accident statistics therefore requires something like a twentyfold increased risk for the tourist driver.
The Government is more concerned with the tourist dollar than with the safety of its citizens. Charles Cole Sydenham
