Speed limits

I am sure the transport authorities are well intentioned in their desire to reduce speed limits on Auckland city streets (NZ Herald, October 23). However, far more fatalities occur on rural roads and that is where changes need to be urgently addressed.
It is ludicrous to have two vehicles hurtling toward each other at 100km/h separated only by a strip of white paint on the road. Imagine if one of those vehicles is a milk tanker or a logging truck and try to visualise what you will look like if you are in the car.
In my view

SkyCity fire

Workplace wellness

Sheep shooed


Scooter fiasco

Hospital debt

Halt trams


Colonial past

Shelf abuse

Short & sweet
