    One of the worst ads on TV. Let's not fix the road but take the cheap way out and lower all the speed limits. Government social engineering at it's worse.

    And then spend public money making a commercial about it showing absolutely nothing of relevance. Stupid, ill-mannered girls asking questions across a busy road? Give me a break! I wonder which monkey signed off making this advert?

    The Napier/Taupo Road, which Wacko Kotahi are going to drop the speed limit to 80K on most of the road soon is a good example of slow the traffic rather than fix the road As a local who has been travelling over the road since early 60's I find this decision was made by the Department of Stupid Decisions. The road was built with a average speed rating of 80KPH which is effortless and extremely safe with modern cars.

    Most people drive according to the law but once again it is the small minority who drive like idiots who have the stupid accidents and cause Wacko Kotahi to crap themselves.

    A pox on the idiot dangerous drivers, and the W. K. idiots who have little little intelligence and think that slowing things down will help.

    They race cars at over 100mph on NZ's very worst gravel roads

    So perhaps its the driver more than the road or the speed thats the issue .
    There is no fix for overtaking on corners , drunk/drugged driving , driving on the wrong side , driving so slow that other drivers do stupid things to get past , driving too fast for corners , txting while driving .

    They say the road death rate is too high, but wont spent the $ to put crash barriers between the 2 oncoming opposite lanes .

    And I wonder which bureaucrat thinks the drivers who cause accidents are going to adhere to a lower speed limit? Responsible drivers drive to the conditions and their personal level of skill, regardless of the posted speed limit.

    Our bureaucrats never seem to understand that only law abiding people obey the rules.

    There's another side to the lowered speeds... they'll save fuel aka CO2.
    Pine forests alone aren't going to be the answer to our global CO2 issues. We will need to travel less, and travel slower. This is just the start of many decades of change. The decades ahead won't be like the decades we've known.
