Should 'cheese-cutter' barriers be banned?


Motorcyclists vow to be out in force throughout New Zealand on Saturday to raise money for rescue helicopter trusts and to demand a halt to the construction of more wire "cheese-cutter" barriers.

Mass rides have been planned in Auckland and four other regions by organisers of a petition signed by at least 7000 people, calling for Transit NZ to stop erecting the barriers pending a review of their safety for all road users, but particularly motorcyclists.

That follows the death on Auckland's Southern Motorway in October of 21-year-old Daniel Evans, whose body was said by a witness to have been severed when he slid into a wire barrier.
