Wellington, May 28 , 2015: Two Indian tourists in New Zealand had their car rental contracts cancelled after they were stopped by police for driving too slow, media reported on Thursday. The drivers drove their two rented vehicles at 60 km/h in a 100 km/h zone in South Island's Queenstown area and stopped frequently in the middle of the road, leading to several people reporting them to the police, Stuff online reported. In their defence, the Indian drivers blamed low visibility due to fog and geo-positioning system (GPS) problems. "They just had no idea. There was a real lack of understanding of our road rules," a police official said. International car rental company Avis, provider of their cars, cancelled both the contracts.
