why are there so many angry drivers around

Joanne from Pakuranga Heights

my daughter has been driving locally and been at the end of someones
anger twice this weekend
1 incident was coming off the SE motorway, doing 5 kms over the limit
when a car (I wont say what) was tailgating her so close she actuallky
lost sight of it in her mirror,then all of a sudden the car appeared
beside her, finger out the window, hurling the F word, calling her a white
bitch, this car stayed even with her for several minutes yelling and
swearing, sadly we had to stop at the lights next to him tirade continued
obviously going 5 km over the speed limit is not fast enough for him
this has all been videoed from a dash cam and a phone/
yesterday in Cahtrsworth, there were a lot of parked cars on both sides
making the road almost one way, she started to drive in between cthe cars on each side when a large black car (again I wont say what type)
sped through hurling abuse and using the finger again, she was lucky
she could pull over in someones driveway to let it through.all it had to do
was wait a couple of seconds, as she works shift work she is quite
scared of driving now,
what is wrong with people these days, there is more traffic than we used
to have, but we all need patience so many angry people out there angry
over nothing

Who can install safety gate (deck)

Nancy from Botany Downs

While Im still on neighbourly for East Auckland, was wanting to check if does anyone know to install a safety gate on a deck. Its just to put a barrier throughout the deck to prevent my dog from jumping out as the front gate is not yet fixed. Attached is the photo of the deck. I'm not a tradie so this is kinda hard for me to do myself. This is a rental property so something that can be removed for future. Pretty much just really to put an enclosure throughout the deck. If you have any other alternative option please feel free to let me know on 02108768677. I will be moving to Greenlane looking if this can be done before I move.in will be great depending on the cost it will take. Appreciate all your responses👍 Thank you😊

Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!
