Poll: Driving drowsy causes 20% of accidents - have you fallen asleep at the wheel before?

Darren from Parnell

A recent Australian study found that 20% of car accidents were caused by drowsy drivers and 1 in 6 drivers admit to falling asleep at the wheel (www.drive.com.au...). How do you solve this? It's a mixture of medical issues (e.g. sleep apnoea), physical issues (e.g. tired muscles), mental issues (e.g. stress), and lifestyle choices (e.g. staying up too late). A solution is to do some online training, e.g. www.drivingtests.co.nz... to make a start in managing fatigue and your sleep, then see a sleep psychologist or sleep surgeon if a more detailed diagnosis is required. There are also resources published by WorkSafe, NZTA and SiteSafe as well as various unions and advocacy organisations that are specific to different industries and jobs. But what is your story? Have you fallen asleep while driving, even if just for a few seconds?

Is your broadband bill about to increase? Don't throw money away.

NZ Compare

Spark have recently announced a price increase of $3 - $5 a month for new and existing broadband customers and other providers seem likely to follow suit.

Information collated by our research team has found that tens of thousands of Kiwis are still missing out on hundreds of dollars of savings each year on their broadband bill, because they are failing to shop around for cheaper broadband plans.

We estimate that over 500,000 households would be able to pay less for their broadband each month but many consumers are unaware of the fact that they could be making these savings and people often don’t know where to start when looking for a change in broadband plan or provider.

This is where NZ Compare can help. Our websites are simple to use and if you need more help, our friendly, Auckland based, customer support centre can advise on the most suitable broadband plan for your needs and help talk you through the switch. With unlimited fibre broadband plans available for less than $60 a month why would you pay more?

Find out more at NZ Compare or call the team on 0508 226672

CORRECTION: This post has been amended to clarify that the price of fibre and copper broadband internet services will increase, and that the increase is between $3 and $5 a month, not only $5 a month on fibre broadband plans as previously posted. (Amended at 10.31am, June 23, 2022)
