Drivers could be out of luck in New Zealand.
The country's roads authority is considering a plan to fine people for running out gas in Auckland, the largest city.
Police recommend the fines as a deterrent for people trying to squeeze the last mile from their last drop of fuel.
Authorities note the dead cars create a traffic hazard.
Police want a law similar to one that fines people more than $170 (US) for walking on a highway.
