This virus will yet again escape in New Zealand unless everyone follows the rules. The vast majority of us have complied with the necessary restrictions and recommendations to keep covid-19 at bay. A few however think they know better and for whatever reason disregard the virus danger. They are putting themselves and others as well as the economy at more serious risk. It is these dissenters alone who won't comply with being asked and who fully justify, make necessary, that the rules become law. And the rules are so simple, the rewards huge. The government has so far, [as usual], been light handed with enforcement. It won't work. The law needs ENFORCING with heavy fines and far stricter oversight. Only then can we compare with the success story of Taiwan. The vast majority of decent New Zealand citizens would welcome, and understand, the need for law enforcement. It's time we got on with it. It is not right that a small minority are left to wreck the place beyond imagination. I feel for Dr Bloomfield who puts his heart and soul into his job but is so undermined by a few idiots.
Drivers could be taxed $3.50 to enter the CBD during peak hour.
The congestion charge of up to $3.50 could be implemented within three years under a proposal unveiled by officials.
It is hoped a congestion charge would spur people to leave their cars behind but there are concerns those who are less well off could feel the pinch.
