Always a pleasure to support such a great cause 🙂

An obvious reminder to always wear a helmet when driving motorcycles. This includes farm bikes too - you still need to wear a helmet even if you are driving between farms and on private property for your personal safety. Helmet use is the most effective way to reduce head injuries. It prevents direct contact between the skull and the impacting object by acting as a mechanical barrier between the head and the object. It also reduces the deceleration of the skull, and hence the brain movement, by managing the impact.

At least get the terminology correct please. You RIDE a Motorcycle, not drive it.

And please make it law that ALL cyclists (powered or pushed) wear HIGHVIS vests on the road!!!! They look cool in black, but they become the same colour as the road!

As per these pictorial examples while the jury is still a bit undecided as to exactly what % of strikes occur on a motorcycle chin bar area they still represent a very vulnerable area. It's conceivable that these stats are a little skewed as in the absence of a chin bar there may have been no strike or impact at all...There again it may not!!!Bottom line...Unless there is an utterly compelling reason not to then always wear a full face helmet. There's always the option of a full front flip helmet that pivots the chin bar out of the way so you can "emerge" while stopped at intersections etc.

We do not drive motorcycles we RIDE them .

I still strongly beleave it should be personal choose

Just bear in mind a helmet doesn't make a rider invincible. The best helmet made is of limited to no value whatsoever at quite a low impact speed other than to keep the mess inside the helmet in one place.Having said that helmets will save your life and good looks from glancing high speed blows and heavy duty abbrasion.

90% of head injuries are permanent

Full face is better if your sliding along the road or under a truck.

Is the excessive exhaust noise still a Law ?, If it is its not working !.

Drug driving is a huge problem in NZ, a recent survey found that 70% of drug users admit to driving under the influence of cannabis or prescription stimulants. Some people may not be aware that the law treats controlled drugs and prescription medicines even-handedly because both can impair your ability to drive safely. If you have taken drugs, do not drive, this can include prescription drugs that impair your driving.For more information about safe driving and road safety please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/drug-abuse/Thank you to Asthma & Respiratory Management BOP Inc, Disraeli Automotive and https://www.dmgsolicitors.co.nz/contact for sponsoring our organisation.

every stoner i ever met drives, and not well.

Sadly I am surprised the statistic is not higher.

Walking school buses are a great way to ensure that your kids are getting to school safely, the key benefits include;
- Reducing the known risk factors for child pedestrian injury.
- Reducing car congestion around schools (an average of 21 fewer cars traveling to school per route).
- Greater awareness by everyone in the community on the role they play in child pedestrian safety.For more tips about child and road safety please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/child-safety/#Keep-kids-road-safe

yes good foot paths and neighbourhood watch, to keep them safe. if police could walk the beat around the schools at that time, it could work

The Minister of Transport has announced the infringement for using a mobile phone while driving will rise from $80 to $150, with effect from 30 April 2021.

At this stage there is no change proposed to the number of demerit points – currently 20 – associated with this offence.

In 2020 over 40,000 mobile phone use infringements were issued. Distracted driving due to mobile device use is a contributing factor in road crashes.

It’s a start but the fine is still not high enough

Still not enough, harder penalties need to be handed out, impound cars for 30 days at their cost on top of a bigger fine. And if they have a "accident" well on it and someone sadly dies they should be charged with murder and locked up for life and not given some stupid sentence, same with drunk driver's and speeding drivers. NZ is just to soft on this, driving is a privilege not a right and people don't get that especially politicians.

And stop putting your feet on the dashboard, the airbags will brake your hips.

Should be a $1000

Saw a cop texting and driving yesterday

This won't stop people
