Poll: Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!

And we make our own BUTTER! This week our Level 5 Diploma students spent two days prepping for and baking croissants. From shaking cream for thirty minutes to achieve a rich butter, to proving the pastry for a minimum two hours to attain the ideal puff and flake. A very technical yet rewarding few days.

Driving lessons checklist for parents wanting to teach their son or daughter how to drive

Steve from Albany

After many years of driving instructing I am now offering parents the tools to use to get your son or daughter up to VTNZ test standard, most parents do a great job of teaching them to drive but just need those extra tips to get them up to test standard level. For a nominal fee of $20 I can supply the same checklist PDF and also another PDF about roundabout procedures that I have used with a 95% pass rate, it will be emailed to you along with a follow up phone call. I used to own one of Auckland's top driving schools, semi retired now.

Please Note: I am no longer taking people out in a car now with this covid lurking around, this decision is for the safety of all as sitting close to each other in a car for 1 hour is risky. I have decided to try a new strategy out now so parents can get their son or daughter up to test standard with my years of experience developed in the "Checklist for Driving lessons" that is so easy to follow, it also is what the testing people at VTNZ are looking for.
