Results also showed that more than half of motorists surveyed failed to service their vehicles regularly. The survey of 500 vehicles was carried out in April at 25 service stations across the country and looked at a range of vehicle owner- ship issues, including insurance and servicing history. Demographics for uninsured vehicles showed a typical trend towards older vehicles not being insured. The average age for a vehicle without insurance was 1995, three years older than New Zealand s median vehicle age. The average odometer read- ing was also higher for uninsured vehicles at around 205,000km trav- elled in comparison to 154,000km as the national average. Results also showed that 51 percent of participants without any insurance on the vehicle they were driving earned less than $25,000 a year while the majority (70 percent) of vehicles with- out insurance had drivers between the ages of26to65. MTA spokeswoman Ana Zandi says the sur- vey results are surpris- ing but show that skimp- ing on vehicle requirements is a reflec- tion of tough times. Our results show that people are not only cut- ting back on basic vehicle costs such as insurance cover, but some are also failing to relicense their vehicles, with an estimated 50 percent holding off servicing their vehicles. Clearly a person s income level directly affects their ability to insure their vehicle or carry out routine vehicle maintenance along with keeping up with vehicle relicensing requirements. Regions that had high levels of motorists with- out insurance included Wellington (21 percent), Manawatu (20 percent) and Auckland (19 per- cent). Only 10 percent of Christchurch motorists surveyed had no insurance.
