Another txt message that was just so important.

Not speed

This is a state highway with a speed limit of 90ks right there. BUT I think it is the only place on a highway in NZ where people stop and let vehicles from side roads in and so vehicles behind the dumb driver have nowhere to go. Also this slows the traffic for the rest of frustrated drvers.

And another!!!

And another example to demonstrate the reduced speed limit on the SH2 isn’t working. Any cop who thinks a reduced speed limit will prevent road traffic accidents should resign......then wake up. Increase the speed limit on the SH2!!
