Some Americans would freak if they had to drive on our gravel roads and think they need something with tracks to get through.
I grew up in Northland, and learned to drive on gravel roads, and also raced rally cars for a few years. I think some of the best roads in New Zealand happen to be gravel (State Highway 38 to Lake Waikaremoana) and are often the fastest way to get from A to B (Kaikohe Road in Northland).
I would hate to think that by marking them as unpaved, tourists to New Zealand would never get to see them
