This week marks Road Safety Week, where we take the chance to highlight ways to keep each other safe on New Zealand’s roads. This year’s theme is Save Lives, #Speakup, and the week coincides with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week. So what does road safety look like to you? #SpeakUp and post a reply below!
This year we’ve lost too many people on our roads. No death on the road is acceptable. Everyone is entitled to safe and healthy mobility. Here at AMI, we’re committed to making our communities safer for everyone. We’ve helped to fund advanced warning signs for rural intersections – so drivers get an early head’s up to slow down – as well as supporting youth training in over 80 schools through Road Safety Education (RSE) , a nationwide organisation helping young people change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives. There has been huge success through RSE’s RYDA programme and in some areas with their Good2GO programme, which is run for students at schools such as Tāmaki College in Auckland.
Road Safety Week encourages us all to take a pledge – what can we as individuals do to improve road safety? Will you avoid all mobile phone use or take more breaks during long road trips? Save Lives, #SpeakUp below and tell us what your pledge is.

I have news that the Avenue road intersection will have its temporaty roundabout very soon. I along with Tim Vandermolen and the Morrinsville Chamber of Commerce have pressured for this to happen it finally looks like our hard work has paid off, now a few more NZTA project to get on with. No date as of yet but soon enough. Funny enough the Mayor warned me not to upset NZTA because they might play hard ball, loos like hard ball from myself, Tim and the Maorrinsville Chamber of Commerce has paid off. Now that is real advocacy, if you want more of the same elect Ash Tanner as Mayor. He has also been very vocal and challenged NZTA.
