400+ munters in one location. Sounds like the police are going to be busy for the weekend.

isn't every friday night?!?


on that note anywhere in palmy on friday night is a bad place to drive no matter what. got stopped at a checkpoint one night on the way out of town and after checking my wof/reg a million times (they must have noticed the harnesses, cage and lack of interior :P) all they wanted to know if i was 'part of the boyracer crew'. fml no wtf why would a boyracer have a track car?!?

Dweebs, Palmy is cake.

Since shifting up to Aucks, it has changed my perspective on dealing with other road users. You can pretty much career about Palmy with a blindfold on.

Tried driving in Blenheim? I swear the people actually wear blindfolds while driving. They consistently pull out in front of you with no thought of how much you need to apply your brakes not to hit them.
Worst place to drive in NZ, Blenheim > Auckland > Other places

That's how people drive in Palmy as well. I swear I feel safer driving in Auckland than I do Palmy. Yep have driven several times in Blenheim, and found it to be fine didn't have anyone pulling out on me. Now Christchurch pre and post earth trying to put them out of their misery makes for interesting driving.
