There seems to be truck accidents more frequently or am I imagining it? A truck in the river on route 36 a few days ago is this road suitable for log truck trailers?..travelling too fast? now this and others recently. Are drivers under more pressure timewise? Route 36 maybe shorter but is quite busy and trucks on the back road can be frightening . On Tamaki drive today on cruise control at 80 kmph every truck passed me. All roads are getting busier but surprising how many trucks are involved in accidents . Roads could be always better but it is still drivers causing the problems . Impatience, speed , tiredness, take your pick. The Kaimai can be a truck jostling exercise. Certainly annoying when trucks overtake one another at similar slow speeds and block the passing lanes. Not going to change
