We know it's our first long weekend since June and many of us are itching to hit the roads, but there's no need to rush. Make sure to slow down, buckle up and have a plan so that you can arrive safely to wherever you're going. 💖
If you're getting behind the wheel:
🌧 Drive to conditions
↔️ Keep a safe following distance
😇 Be patient with other drivers
☕️ Take regular breaks to stay alert
⌚️ Allow plenty of time
👉 Use that indicator!

Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.

Wellingtonians are flocking to places like Ōtaki and Levin to find affordable housing. Some people are even commuting from Palmerston North to Wellington.
Horowhenua District Mayor Bernie Wanden’s is using the sales pitch for Levin: “Still close to Wellington and offers a heck of a lot more.”
When the various roading projects underway are all finished it is claimed it will take 50 minutes to get from Horowhenua to Wellington.
