Because in their home country you just have to pay money to the right people to get a license and then you can go to another country and drive for a period of time without converting it over.

That's why all car parks should have diagonal parking as in most places in the States. I've never
understood why they don't... so simple it's (almost) fool proof!

If driving-related tasks need to be made foolproof, then too many fools are allowed to drive.

No, if you read what I wrote, they get a license in their own country, and then use that to drive in another. Most places you have a year on your foreign license. How else do you explain the problems around auckland with immigrant drivers who are taking cars of a lot never having driven themselves before?

OK I need to get my head around this. It is very bad car control but how do you know she is not Australian?

2014 Toyota. Probably a new owner in a new car. Yeah it's bad but does not look like the easiest rear view either. +Tints.

Restricting traffic to one direction maybe.

Malls are stingey with parking room anyway. Always trying to squeeze in the maximum number of spaces possible to get the most customers on busy days.
