Happy Fri-YAY Neighbourhood Supporters! 🥳

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

We know it's our first long weekend since June and many of us are itching to hit the roads, but there's no need to rush. Make sure to slow down, buckle up and have a plan so that you can arrive safely to wherever you're going. 💖

If you're getting behind the wheel:

🌧 Drive to conditions

↔️ Keep a safe following distance

😇 Be patient with other drivers

☕️ Take regular breaks to stay alert

⌚️ Allow plenty of time

👉 Use that indicator!
