Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Long-term road safety data from NZTA suggests speed limits on almost 90 per cent of the country's roads are too high and should be lowered.

Long-term road safety data from NZTA suggests speed limits on almost 90 per cent of the country's roads are too high and should be lowered.

In 2019 so far, 172 people have been killed on New Zealand's roads, six more than at the same time last year.

Ministry of Transport data for 2016, the most recent available on its website, makes for sobering reading – 328 deaths from 286 fatal road crashes, or 0.9 deaths for every 10,000 vehicles.

Poll: Is it time to raise New Zealand's superannuation age?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Outgoing Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell has been outspoken about the need to increase the pension age from 65.

"You used to get super for five years, then 10 and now 20 - soon it'll be 30. I'm not sure how we can fund people getting super for 30 years or more."

Outgoing Retirement Commissioner Diane Maxwell has been outspoken about the need to increase the pension age from 65.

"You used to get super for five years, then 10 and now 20 - soon it'll be 30. I'm not sure how we can fund people getting super for 30 years or more."

New Zealand has one of the simplest pension schemes in the world - all you have to do is be old enough and have lived in the country long enough and you can get it.

But that also makes it expensive - about $14.5 billion this year. Jobseeker benefits, by comparison, cost just $1.7b and sole parent support $1.08b.
