How are SH6 speed limit changes being received, one month in?

Tim O'Connell Reporter from The Nelson Mail

On December 18, Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) dropped the speed limits along SH6 between Nelson and Blenheim.

Police say the majority of road users were adhering to the new limits, with an educational approach had been taken in monitoring driver behaviour, while motorists have been largely accepting of the changes.

What has been your experience of the speed limit changes? Has it resulted in noticeably slower travel times or different driver behaviour?

Cell Phone in car use

Robert from Motueka

Just so you know if you get caught using your phone will driving the FINE has now doubled to $150. Driving between Motueka and Nelson every weekday I have lost count of drivers using their phones. I do hope you get caught. The fine should be $500 and your phone taken off you. 22 people have died on NZ roads in the past 5 years due to phone use.
Just my thoughts.
