Pregnant driver forced off road

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

How's this for bad driving - Nickoll Joubert, who is 28-weeks pregnant with twin boys, was taking her normal driving route from Matamata to Walton when she was forced to take evasive action.

An oncoming driver's poorly-timed overtaking maneuver left her with no option but to pull over and avoid a crash.

Now she's urging people to stay cool behind the wheel.

Have you witnessed a shocker on the roads recently?

Water usage high in Hamilton!

The Team from Hamilton City Council

With our January outdoor water use up 30% on last year, Hamiltonians are urged to be mindful of their water usuage to avoid further water restrictions. Sprinkler monitors are now out and about and anyone who notices water being wasted is encouraged to report it.
