Thanks NZ Police!

Look what arrived in the mail today. Yes we are very annoyed that we got ticketed doing 119km/h while completing a passing manouevre on the way to Wanaka but let's try & see the positive side.

We are now the proud owners of a priceless photo. Who else would be able to take such a beautifully clear photo of our car & us in it in such a picturesgue area. So for that I would like to thank the NZ Police. I can't believe that they actually got us with our indicator going, so we are usually very law abiding citizens & indicate where we are going not like a lot of other motorists we saw that day. Speaking of which it was a busy day on that road, why else would we have past 7 cops on the way down to Wanaka. Which brings me to the question is it better sit behind a car that does 95 km/h on the open flat stretches & then brakes for every bend & get frustrated or is it better to pass them?

Yes I am annoyed but it seems to me that obviously when driving you are only allowed to go past a car that is driving at like 70km/h on the open road. How else are you going to get past it without breaking the 100km/h speed limit? Oh sorry you can pass a car going 95km/h as long as you can sit on the other side of the road for like the 5 minutes it would take to pass it & not break the speed limit.

So where exactly do you think this photo is going? That's right I want to scrapbook it but what I would really like to do is to have a NZ Police officer tell me how to pass a car travelling at 95km/h without breaking the speed limit while staying on the other side of the road for as shorter time as possible. If anyone out there can answer that question please reply here so that I can scrapbook it for my son's as "How to Safely pass a car going 95km/h without breaking the speed limit".

Oh the by the way for those who think they know the road to Wanaka take a guess where we were.

Thanks once again NZ Police for the priceless photo & also to the NZ taxpayer for paying to have such state of the art equipment that can take such awesome photos.
