OPINION: New Zealand is a small country, so we often look to others for ideas on how to improve road safety.

The Government's desire to "cherry pick" initiatives from other nations that have improved theirs often fills me with dread.

You might think massive speeding fines and/or more speed cameras would help because that's worked elsewhere, but maybe those other countries have thousands of kilometres of motorway that support higher speed limits and safe overtaking.

You might think median barriers are a good idea; but again, they probably make more sense in places where the primary national highway isn't mostly a narrow one-lane track.
