Good example

A good example of why reducing the speed limit on the SH2 from 100 to 80 isn’t going to work. This accident happened in a 60kph zone. It’s the drivers, not the road or the posted speed limits!!

The power in Omokoroa was out before the accident occurred. The car hit a lamp post, not a power pole.
