Do we need stricter safety regulations for e-scooters?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Nor-west News

Hi neighbours, Auckland Council has announced Lime and its competitors will have to follow stricter rules around the safety of their e-scooters. The council is also calling for central Government to introduce more regulations. What are your thoughts on e-scooters? Should they be allowed on footpaths? Do we need more safety regulations? Or are the current rules strict enough?

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.
