Do you know someone who's had to wait a months to sit their restricted licence?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Do you know someone who has experienced the challenges of locking in their practical test? Since the story was published, driving instructor Kevin Bannan says more test times have been opened up in April.

High street upgrade

Ron from Motueka

Whoever thinks the modifications of High Street will improve the traffic flow through our town centre is dreaming
The TDC the Waimea dam which should never have got of the ground {Thank you to the previous mayor } and now all TDC ratepayers will be contributing to the out of control cost for years to come and if our rates are not already far to high for what we receive from TDC
This decision by the TDC shows us all what a weak disjointed lot we have voted in to run our affairs
These traffic lights will further cause traffic build up in High Street and this will be worse during the summer season
To see heavy traffic trucks having to use High Street is madness and more than ha
lf the traffic travelling through High Street have no intention of wanting to stop but to continue there journey up to Golden Bay so why not a traffic bypass god forbid we have on each side of High Street plenty of room
Rest assured when these modifications are complete we will be in the same position we now have with the Waimea dam and we will say why did we let this happen

Glyphosate (contained in 90 products in New Zealand, including Roundup) is used by farmers and ecologists alike, but some scientists in New Zealand say we don't know enough its long term effects on the environment, and it should classified as hazardous. What do you think?
