Hol­i­day safety

Hamilton News - - NEWS -

Po­lice and the NZ Trans­port Agency are ask­ing every­one trav­el­ling these school hol­i­days to plan ahead, take reg­u­lar breaks, and stay safe on the roads. In five days dur­ing the school hol­i­days last Oc­to­ber, 15 lives were lost on New Zealand roads. Po­lice said those go­ing away should en­sure they are well rested, make sure their fo­cus is on driv­ing safely, watch their speed and fol­low­ing dis­tances, make sure they’re driv­ing fresh and alert, don’t get dis­tracted by the kids in the back or by phones, and make sure every­one is wear­ing a seat­belt.
