I am amazed at the attitude of people regarding the scanning of the COVID QR Code. From interactions I have had with people it appears that the attitude is that now we are out of lockdown it's not necessary to scan or that the whole thing is a scam. What could be more incorrect than this. It's just as, if not more, important to keep scanning and being vigilant so that hopefully between us all - this country of 5,000,000 - we can prevent another outbreak, especially with these new variants. I consciously scan the QR Code where ever I am and if not I complete a manual enter.
Come on everyone let's keep this COVID out and get scanning.
Do you agree with proposed new speed directions for the Napier-Taupō Road?
New speed limits are being proposed on a section of the notorious Napier-Taupō Road (State Highway 5) with public consultation beginning this week.
Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency is focusing on a section of road from Rangitaiki to Esk Valley as well as section of State Highway 51 from between Waipatu in Hastings and Marine Parade in Napier.
The proposed speed limit between Rangitaiki and Esk Valley on SH5 would reduce from 100kmh to 80kmh.
NZTA figures showed that between 2010 and 2019, 16 people were killed in crashes on SH5 and another 75 people were seriously injured.
