Tourism New Zealand spokeswoman Deborah Gray says the organisation is working as fast as it can to fix the error. Gray said the footage was edited by a visiting videographer.

“Tourism New Zealand is taking all steps it can to keep visitors safe on our roads so are extremely disappointed in this oversight,” she said.  “The drivers are in fact driving on the correct side, but the image has been flipped.”
