Poll: Are Kiwis bad drivers?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Each country has its own idiosyncrasies when it comes to driving and New Zealand is no different.
With daily near-misses, people incorrectly indicating at roundabouts and a lack of stopping at stop signs, it begs the question: Are Kiwis actually not that good at driving?

Crocky

“My name’s Crocky... the nickname I've had my whole life. When I was six I had a possum skin hat like the American folklore hero Davy Crockett. I never wanted to take off the hat.
Where I feel most at home is the Southern Lakes where I was born, but I had my school years in Christchurch after my mum moved here when my parents divorced.
I buggered off overseas in the 2000’s, at one point I lived in New York. In the last 10 years I lived in Wellington, it had everything of a big city but like a small village, everything is accessible. Now I'm back again in Christchurch.
I squirrelled and saved and saved and just brought my first home. It's a new build with a vintage feel. I try and get around on my electric motorbike or my push bike, makes me feel like I'm on a mission. It's the best way to see the city. I feel bad using a car when I'm the only one in it. I like going tramping and nature is really good for me.
My biggest thing at the moment; I have an addiction to thrift shopping. I think thrifting is so cool - there's a real market for it, you know what you're looking for and it's great for reselling stuff that's already been created. I have a full time job that's stable so it’s kinda become a bit of a side hustle.
I'm currently collecting digital cameras. I have about 15, op shops think they are no good as everyone is using their phones. I source the chargers and clean the cameras up and sell them on and give them new life. Everyone's going back to the Y2K era for nostalgic reasons, the noise of them clicking a photo - very cool.”
