NZ drivers are just incompetent, plain and simple. Too fast, no signals, following too close, not looking ahead.....Simple fix.... bring in retesting and enforce retraining then test again....but proper driver training carried out by REAL driver trainers. The stats prove Im right! Nothing will change until this happens.

What is wrong with this stretch of road? Has it got bad karma over it or are the driver’s simply not careful enough? Sadly a fatality on Friday night, between Bethlehem and Te Puna. This stretch of road must be a "jumping off" point. Every day I see people taking risks, driving too fast. The message simply does not seem to sink in.
