A road sign for German tourists

This New Zealand sign warns German tourists that they are no longer on the autobahn, and must keep to the left (‘links’ in German). Many Germans have been attracted to regions such as Golden Bay in the South Island, which they see as an unspoiled haven compared to their highly urbanised homeland.
