NZ 3rd Party Vehicle Insurance sign now

After numerous issues with irresponsible drivers, Ive decided it is time to forward my concerns to the New Zealand government about the absolute need for compulsory 3rd party insurance for all drivers on New Zealand roads.
In the past 8 weeks alone, I have managed to be crashed into twice by wreck less drivers. Upon collection of the individuals details, I have learned that on both occasions neither of these drivers had bothered to cover themselves with 3rd party vehicle insurance. This left me in a very awkward situation. Firstly, were they actually going to pay for the damage and secondly were they going to provide me with legitimate details to contact them on.
In one of these situations, the young driver that crashed into me was a student and her car was almost a write off. She ended up having to fork out over $1000 to have my car repaired, let alone the damage to her vehicle.
Third party insurance is very inexpensive the average cost to insure a typical 4 door sedan with a 2L engine is approx $250 per annum (including fire and theft).
I know that most of us sensible citizens would not leave a car yard (or our homes) without calling an insurance company and arranging at least 3rd party cover but not all of us are like that we live in a society of morons! Therefore, we once again need to be forced into schemes to encourage (or force) us to be responsible. In this case we need the government to look into this issue seriously and make it compulsory for ALL drivers to have a 3rd party insurance policy.

New Zealand is one of the only developed countries not to have such legislation which rings question marks in my mind!!??

Whether this policy should be included as part of the annual vehicle registration cost or charged in another way such as through another increase in petrol/diesel/LPG prices I am not sure, but we need it to be implemented as soon as possible!!

If you agree with the above and believe this should be taken seriously by our government, please sign this petition. Hopefully with a bit of backing from fellow responsible drivers we can get the ball rolling!!
