Safe driving in New Zealand

​New Zealand has one of the most unique road networks in the world. Rather than four lane super-highways, New Zealand has lush green countryside on each side of the highway, sealed roads nested in the side of steep mountains and clear views of a pea-green ocean as you meander along the coast. Remember, you are on holiday so relax, enjoy the slower pace!
