Thieving Kiwi's

After spending thousands of our hard earned cash in New Zealand on our recent holiday it looks like the NZ government wants us to pay a little more. After the horrible feeling of getting a speeding ticket had subsided which in this case was only a few seconds i had to laugh at the amount. I put $80NZ into a currency converter and it turns out to be $61 Aus dollars. Still laughing at the $60 speeding fine.......

And the best part is that the wife was the hirer of the car ..... lol. I guess they have to collect as much cash as they can to rebuild Christchurch. Ah well least its going to a good cause.


  1. You should be ashamed of yourself! Only 13km/h over? At that price you could have afforded to be doing 150 klicks..............

  2. Chillertek, Thanks for the comments on my blog! I enjoyed reading yours. Thanks for all the great pictures and stories!

  3. Just found your blog. Very interesting. I recently got a speeding ticket, sure wish the fine was = to your fine. Mine is over twice as much. Enjoying your posts.

  4. @Flyboy - Just lucky i wasn't on the bike or it could have been 150+.

    @Erik & Motoroz - Thanks for checking out my blog. Erik your blog is pretty good, i haven't found many blogs from the states that are not harley blogs. Nice to read a sportsbike blog from over there.

  5. Now, do you have to worry about the insurance company finding out? That's really the only reason I don't want to get caught, er, that I don't speed.

  6. @Brady - What they don't know won't hurt them, besides it was my wife's fault honest.
