Poll: "traffic control", or "the cone people"

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

They seem to put lots of cones out, needed or not. I've seen them cone kilometers of Kamo bypass when there was one small truck parked there and one guy working 20m off the road, cutting scrub. I've seen them several times drive down the highway at 20-30 km/h while they are not working, no road works near by, but flashing their lights and collecting kilometer long queues; both north and south of Whangarei. I've seen them putting 3 stop and go guys on an intersection that normally works just fine with 80km/h traffic flowing both ways on the highway, after they had closed the road to single lane, 50km/h, one direction only and the work was under way hundreds of meters away.

Civil Defence are?

Ralph Darcy from Central Whangarei

Makes you wonder what all the fuss is about when today we get siren warnings with a 8.0 earthquake near the Kermadec island Raoul and yesterday in the same area there was a 8.1 and no warning from Civil Defence? Can anyone explain why the difference response from CD.
