Lots of Kiwis drive hearses


New Zealanders have been registering their cars as hearses to get out of paying full road tax.

It came to light when a Christchurch woman told a radio station she had paid just £19 to register her car, instead of the usual £60. She had registered it as a “non-commercial hearse” that would be used to carry dead animals.

The woman’s definition of carrying dead animals was taking frozen chickens home from the supermarket.

Other listeners then called NewstalkZB to say they had done the same.


Needless to say, this is illegal and local officials are up in arms. My take? Ingenious!
