"Her thought process was that her and her children would just be left on the side of the road in Wairoa if the police impounded her car." Mr Jensen also argued against members of the media taking photographs of his client because of an "emotional consideration" for her children.

At least her thought processes are consistent.  Consistently poor, but consistent.

I miss the days when a parent could throw their kid in the back of a pickup truck like a dog and just let them roll around.

Of course, we had foam padding and blankets and the hardshell top to keep us in, but dammit, we rode in the back and ENJOYED it.

Oh, brings back memories.

In the U.S., she'd be put in jail. The kids would go into foster care.  By our standards, 80 hours community service after a chase and letting her keep the children isn't even a concept anymore.

Yes we did.  Now only roofers and large, drooly dogs seem to get to enjoy the freedom, sun and wind.

Judge notes that this was fairly routine in the '80s and sentences the mother to 80 hours community service.

You are never going to be taken seriously, Kiwis, unless you step up and handle this the way a superpower would. Minimum $5,000 fine, a couple years in jail, put all the kids in foster care, and confiscate the car to use in police drug stings

We rode to football practice in the open bed of the truck. My dad, who was the coach, used to stop along the way and pick up other players.

Entire generations of people grew up without car seats, seat belts or even seats when riding in the bed of a pickup and their parents weren't thrown in jail.

You can't bubble wrap the entire world to protect your crotch fruit.

Well, some of the roads around that part of New Zealand are "metal" (aka gravel) or just plain dirt, so 40 would be pretty speedy.

i once rode in the bed of my dad's pickup from minden, louisiana, to hope, arkansas...about a 1.5 hour ride...no padding...maybe had a shirt or jacket or something rolled up as a pillow...i layed (lied? who the f cares...?) down for the majority of the ride...looking up at the sky going by was neat. it was evening, almost dark by the time we got home. no ill effects. i was maybe 12...? but throughout my childhood/youth, riding in the bed of the truck was fun

From TFA:

When police stopped Waihape they found she was transporting a 2-year-old, a 3-year-old and two 14-year-olds unrestrained and in non-compliant car seats that were not secured to the body of the car.

So, 14 year old in New Zealand have to use car seats?

Talk about a nanny state.

my grandpa had, for the first 25 or 30 years of my life, a pickup (well, over the years, a succession of 3 different trucks) with a covered bed, and inside, an actual bed. no, not for kinky stuff...he used it for naps on his hunting and fishing trips. and i slept in sometimes when we'd spend the night at my aunt's cabin, or a couple of times, even, in his carport

CSB time: In HS we practiced marching band at the stadium, and on lazier days seniors would drive over to the stadium rather than walk all the way back to the band room (close to a quarter mile walk, as we were on the far side of the building).

So one night my junior year, a bunch of us jumped in my section leader's pickup to go back. Two trumpet players, being the brightest among us (not), were leaning against the tailgate...and bang. One did a perfect backflip in the middle of the road (AND stuck the landing in front of oncoming cars!), and I pulled the other in from almost being in the road.

The band directoe saw it all. We lost car privileges after that.

According to the story I read, authorities resisted attempts to take pictures of her because the community, seeing her, would bring shame on the whole family.  So, thank you Channel 12 for bringing on the Great Kiwi Shame-athon.

Steel tanks were all the rage back in the day.

The firsat accident I every had (my fault) was pulling out of a gas station when the master cylinder died on my 64 Olds Dynamic 88.  I drifted out into the street before I could stop the beast. Unfortunately, the Stingray(fiberglass)  turning right at the corner I was pulling out onto caught his front wheel well on my bumper, and ripped the entire side of his car off. My damage? My car swayed about one inch to the side, and my hefty chrome bumper sustained a small scratch.

Maybe in your country you can't afford cars to have seats, and just sit on bar metal undercarriage of the car, but most places in the world aren't like that.

I hit a BMW 3-series that turned left in front of me, mistakenly thinking I was turning left (I was in a turn-optional lane, while she didn't even have the option). Dented the crap out of the Beemer's back door. Put a slight scuff on the rubber fender guard of my '74 Nova.

Given the casual attitudes toward safety that New Zealanders hold outside officialdom (particularly rural New Zealanders), and the improvisational ingenuity of low-income Maoris, I would not be surprised if the car had no actual car seats, but rather a mixed collection of lawn furniture, dinette chairs and barcaloungers.

In a POS stationwagon.... uh yes... it is.  Probably think your going to die or the damn thing is going to fall apart at that speed. Seriously.  Unless you've never been in one before.
