Humor is a great way for people to remember your message. If it makes you laugh, it’ll stick in your mind like a splinter. A helpful splinter that keeps reminding you to wear your seatbelt and to avoid using your phone when driving.

The New Zealand Police regularly creates hilarious posts to remind the public what they should and shouldn’t do. Not only that, but they also post pictures of their canine officers and cop cats and they’re so adorable, some of us can’t help but wonder if we shouldn’t become Kiwis.

We couldn’t wait to share some of the New Zealand Police’s best posts with you, so we collected them into this handy list for you, dear Pandas. Scroll down, upvote your fave posts, remember to let us know in the comments which ones you enjoyed the most and why. Bored Panda reached out to the NZ Police force and is eagerly awaiting its response.

The ear is on point

The internet is oversaturated with content and information. So standing out is a challenge. But here are some things that help you get noticed. Posting about dogs. Posting about cats. Posting about funny things that happen at home and at work. In other words, when you’re cute and funny, the internet finds you like a moth finds a lighthouse.

The New Zealand Police is full of pleasant surprises. For example, they’ve recently “recruited” their very first Artificial Intelligence officer named Ella (or Electronic Lifelike Assistant)! Talk about high-tech serving and protecting.

I don’t understand how using the indicator is so impossibly difficult to use for some drivers

Even worse when it’s portrayed to be ok on TV shows.

Ella is a mix of 26 different people and was revealed at the police national HQ in Wellington this week. Users will be able to ask Ella for information. She can also connect them to whomever they’re visiting, according to the NZ Herald. People can also report crimes to Ella.

Like most people starting a new job, Ella will go through a 3-month testing period after which she’ll be uploaded to digital kiosks all throughout New Zealand if successful.

Meanwhile, if you’re a Kiwi, you can test out Ella’s capabilities in the Wellington, Johnsonville, and Featherston police stations. Social media and AI? Sounds like the NZ Police force is racing ahead into the future at full speed (and they’re wearing their seatbelts, of course).

Ugh, yes. So many people seem to think of the indicator as something you turn on WHILE you switch lanes or take a turn. If they use it at all…

The Scandinavian words give English speakers a lot of giggles. The Swedish word for end station have made several tourists bring out their cameras when it pops up on the board, it’s slutstation.

Also, less likely to end up killing someone. Both aggressive and careless drivers are barely a step up from murderers IMO… They might not be out to kill people outright, but they sure don’t seem to mind risking it.
