Kiwis driving ?hearses?
People in New Zealand have been registering their cars as hearses to get out of paying full road tax. Ananova.com reports that the craze started after a woman speaking on a radio station revealed she had paid the equivalent of £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, although her definition of carrying dead animals was taking frozen chickens home from the supermarket.
