More bad truck experiences

Opinion Piece

I totally agree with G.R. Watson. I was travelling to Hastings and back recently and on the way was passed on a double yellow line by an empty log truck. On the way back I pulled into a passing bay to allow another vehicle to pass, and neck minit a truck and trailer unit near took me out — I had to slam on my brakes or he would have got me with his trailer.

I could go on and on. These people that make discussions sitting behind office desks need to get out and drive on these roads. Just the roadworks alone is enough justification to have rail reinstated, let alone the safety issue.

I listened to Winston Peters say NZ First is going to open the rail. Yep, that’s it. Thanks Winston.
