I love the habit in NZ of overtaking on a two-lane road by using the middle of the road and expecting on-coming cars to pull over out of the way.
What part of NZ do you live in? I've never seen that.
The batshit crazy NZ driving rule from about ten-fifteen years ago now, was that traffic turning across oncoming traffic (that would be a left turn in the US) had right of way!!!! It made some kind of sense as it allowed traffic queuing to turn to instead clear the road and not build up...but it was something I never got used to, and am glad they changed.
Not quite, it was that right turns had the right of way over left turns, but did not over traffic going straight (This would be the opposite in the states because we drive on the left side of the road here). it was a batshit rule for sure and I'm glad it changed a few years ago.
