driving while on the phone

Joanne from Pakuranga Heights

just a plea to people who use phones while driving, of the impact this
can have. I have a son and a friend who have both been involved in crashes (I call them that as they are not accidents) caused by people
driving while on a phone. Both cases involved trucks,
while not seriously injured thank god, the bother of having your car off
the road and repaired is so frustrating, in my sons case his vehicle was
his business, insurance never really covers all losses. and my friends
car is a total write off now he has to find a new one, after he had just
spent a lot of money on it
so please people especially drivers who drive for a living and should
know better think of the consquences of your law breaking actions
nothing is that important on your phone to risk killing someone
if you must use a phone buy a hands free, far cheaper than a crash
for everyone involved

Which local cafes make the best coffee?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, we all know Kiwis love coffee but a survey has found that Auckland coffee drinkers are more likely to buy their coffee than Kiwis from the regions. A third of Aucklanders buy at least half of their weekly coffees and most preferred a flat white. How often do you buy coffee out? What do you usually order? And which local cafes do you think make the best coffee? Share your thoughts in the comments.
