How will this affect your wages?

The Team from ACC New Zealand

For most workers, part of your wage goes to ACC. We’re proposing you pay more because accidents and medical costs have gone up. If you’re a wage earner, these proposals could affect you.

Learn about all the proposals and have your say at our site by October 25.

Recycling

Max & Lizzie from Linton

Can someone please advise me, do our local Councils encourage businesses to recycle. This is very easily done with rebates on rates, refuge collection etc and would of course reduce the carbon footprint of any business and/or community. If not I would love to know why not. I would love to hear … View moreCan someone please advise me, do our local Councils encourage businesses to recycle. This is very easily done with rebates on rates, refuge collection etc and would of course reduce the carbon footprint of any business and/or community. If not I would love to know why not. I would love to hear your feedback, I know schools are always trying to set an example to their pupils, does the Council strive to do that too?
I would love to hear about you if your business does actively recycle as I personally would like to support you when and if I can!

Reminder for motorists this long weekend

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Note on speed threshold: Over the holiday period – 4pm on Friday 19 October to 6am on Tuesday 23 October 2018 – if you're detected by a safe speed camera exceeding the posted speed limit by more than 4 km/h, you are highly likely to be ticketed.

Note on speed threshold: Over the holiday period – 4pm on Friday 19 October to 6am on Tuesday 23 October 2018 – if you're detected by a safe speed camera exceeding the posted speed limit by more than 4 km/h, you are highly likely to be ticketed.

Police and the NZ Transport Agency are reminding people to start their journey well rested and stay safe on the roads if they are going away for the long weekend.

“Share the road like it’s your family driving around you,” says Superintendent Steve Greally, National Manager Road Policing. “This is where Police’s focus remains as well. We know the four main behaviours that contribute to death and serious injury on our roads are people driving distracted, drivers impaired by fatigue, drugs, or alcohol, drivers speeding, and people not wearing their seatbelt.

Statistics: During Labour weekend in 2017 there were five fatal crashes and 76 reported injury crashes. These crashes resulted in six deaths, 23 serious injuries and 103 minor injuries.

In 2017, fatigue was a contributing factor in 32 fatal crashes and 100 serious injury crashes. Driver fatigue is difficult to identify or recognise as contributing to a crash. This means it’s likely that fatigue is under-recorded, and contributes to more crashes than we realise.

Going Forward

Stewart from Levin

Do you dislike this phrase? I heard a great parody of it's use on the radio perhaps 2-3 years ago and I'm trying to track it down but no luck with Google searches. Does anyone else recall hearing and enjoying it, probably on National Radio I think? Thanks.

Topiki boundary changes

Paul Mitchell Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hi Neighbours,

Hi Neighbours,
A combined committee, called Topiki, representing Tokomaru and Ōpiki wants the towns to join the Palmerston North City Council - they believe the Horowhenua District Council is neglecting and ignoring the towns, and they will be better off as part of Palmerston North.
Do you think its a good idea? And do you think there are any other towns looking to jump ship from their current council?

Kia ora water-lovers!

Here are some tips to make sure you and your loved ones are well prepared and stay safe:

1. Check the marine weather forecast before you go out, it could save your life! 58% of boaties already check it. We want the other 42% to make it a habit. MetService New Zealand's Marine App makes it easy.

2. Tests your life jackets. Pull hard on the straps and see if any of them stretch or rip. Check all over for any existing tears in the straps and any cuts or punctures in the life jacket. If yes, do not use the life jacket, dispose of it, and replace it. Always check if it floats before putting them on. Keep in mind kapok life jackets should not be used as they can absorb water and sink, their cotton straps also easily rip! Burn them or bin them, but whatever you do - don't use or resell them.

3. For this year's Safer Boating Week, boaties are being reminded to “Prep, Check, Know” - prepare your boat, check your gear and know the rules before going on the water.

Let's put in the time and effort to make sure there are NO water related accidents or deaths this Labour Day long-weekend! Don't forget to look out for each other and report any concerns you have to local authorities.
