The gen­eral elec­tion is over but we’re still wait­ing for Mr Pe­ters to make up his mind. Did you vote for Win­ston or NZ First? Are you tired of wait­ing for a de­ci­sion to be made over the com­po­si­tion of our gov­ern­ment for the next three years? We’d love to hear your thoughts for our Con­ver­sa­tions page. On to themes more close to home, road safety. You would have read re­porter Emma James’s story on the se­ries of car crashes be­tween Cam­bridge and Mor­rinsville late last week. In­cred­i­bly, a nearby prop­erty owner be­lieves drivers ig­nored signs warn­ing of the new road seal there and did not re­duce their speed. Three crashes in the same spot in un­der 12 hours was the re­sult. We also have Phillipa Yalden’s story on the fa­tal crash on Scott Rd in Leam­ing­ton re­cently, and how neigh­bours came out to help the vic­tim, and help re­tain the of­fend­ing driver be­fore po­lice were able to take over. As sum­mer looms and we head away on hol­i­days, let’s try to think more about keep­ing our­selves and oth­ers safe on the roads.
