So there you are Kiwi motorist cruising down the Auckland southern motorway at a 100kph, and splat - a mosquito smacks into your windscreen. Does your car slow down as a result?
Yes, according to the laws of physics - but only by a millionth of a kilometre an hour, dropping your speed to a more sedate 99.9999999 kph.
At least youwon't get a ticket.
