Price on: rais­ing the speed limit

New Zealand Classic Car - - Online This Month -

Speed lim­its are a touchy sub­ject for Ki­wis, with each side of the fence firmly di­vided on the mat­ter: you ei­ther think rais­ing it is the best thing ever or that it will cause the big­gest in­crease in road deaths since the ad­vent of the mo­tor ve­hi­cle. Ei­ther way, when the NZ Trans­port Agency (NZTA) started talk­ing about it, it was re­ported (al­beit in­cor­rectly) that the en­tire coun­try would see an in­crease in speed across our roads, reg­u­lar colum­nist Greg Price jumped in to pen his thoughts on the sit­u­a­tion.

Turns out that the NZTA’S plans are not as they would ap­pear, and Greg breaks down what was and is be­ing pro­posed. Search ‘speed limit’ to find the full ar­ti­cle.
