Drink driving is an ongoing concern in New Zealand! Despite overwhelming evidence of the harm drink driving causes, alcohol is still a factor in 30% of all fatal crashes in New Zealand. So why is this still happening? There may be a misconception that ‘drunk driving’ means people are visibly drunk. The fact is: any alcohol in your system affects your judgement and degrades your driving. If you drink, don’t drive, at all!

In some countries, a DIC conviction has the addition of a course on addiction.

Drink driving took the life of my girl , took a mumma away from her child .....I've been guilty of it before ...lost my licence ...its not ok ....EVER !!!!...C'mon Kiwi's we can do better....We must do better

Punishments for repeat offenders is far too light.

And drug driving will be the next thing.

But we are stomping out tobacco, because alcohol is so much better???

Shamefull really.The limpwrists are jumping on the ciggy buzz but not on the good old boys companys pumping out alcohol as being socially acceptable.Booze is money.Money is social postion.Position is rule making..😢

The cop in the photo looks Australian

No alcohol is far far worse than cigarettes

Our Community Constable Bryan and Bobby from the New Zealand Police don't like People drinking in His town especially when He is on duty

Winter is well and truly here - drive to the conditions and stay safe!

Winter is well and truly here - drive to the conditions and stay safe!You have less grip and traction in wet, snowy or icy conditions. Remember to slow down and drive to the conditions 🖐🏻🚗 ❄️

In winter, a following distance of 4-5 seconds is a good rule of thumb but even further is better. After all, anything that gives you more time to react is a good thing in adverse weather conditions! ⛄️ 🌧 ☔️

Stay safe out there.

Now is the time to check your tires ... even I notice bald tires when I walk past vehicles. If I can see them, why can the owner "NOT" see them? They are putting their and their friends / families lives at risk and could also kill or injure an innocent stranger.

Agree....black ice, fog , cold tired drivers , inclement weather....be safe out there KIWIS 💯

This highly addictive drug can cause permanent psychological issues, long term physical disorders and death. In 2013, it was estimated that 1% of the NZ population was using Methamphetamine. Another study tracked 1000 people and found 28% reported using the drug at least once between the age of 18 and 35, while 11% used it monthly at some point and 4.9% had used it weekly. https://pmgt.org.nz/drug-abuse/#Methamphetamine If you need support or know of someone who needs support, please reach out to these free nationwide support services. https://pmgt.org.nz/directory/#drugs-&-alcohol-directory

How come only 4.9% of respondents are using it weekly if it is so addictive?

ty for the info...shared to waiuku and frnklin crime and safety page

In every extended family n nieghbourhood.Todays social feel good pestilince...

statistics are only a estimate number & in most results the dark number is always higher. another thing, I'm a recovering addict & have used anything that came along my way & meth was the one that nearly killed me & f**ked up a lot of people I know who did & still do. Who ever thinks surviving years of active addiction is the explanation for daily use has never experienced what it means to live, being free of compulsive behavior & having money for food. if you don't want to believe... attend a open AA (alcohol) or NA (narcotics) or SA (suicide), ACA (Adult Cildren of Alcoholics), OA (overeaters), SA (sex) & all the other anonymous groups & you will come to understand the the substance is only the means to an end but the trauma, dysfunctional families/relationships, domestic violence, etc is the reason why people use. The substance is for many the only way to survive another 24 hours. I don't mean to steer but I know how dark society is for real... My name is Jacqueline & I'm a grateful recovering addict, peace

If it's so addictive then wouldn't people Need to use it daily? After all, an alcoholic cannot just have a bit of a drink weekly ... It's a compulsive daily addiction. I think either the stats are wrong or the information gained is .

QUICK FACT! A house fire can kill you in less than five minutes, from when it starts burning. When you’re asleep, you lose your sense of smell, thats why its so important to have working smoke alarms and a household escape plan to know what to do in a fire. Children as young as five can learn what to do in a fire emergency. Teach your children to ‘get out and stay out’ if theres a fire. Fire and Emergency New Zealand also offer a free programme to assist where young people are showing an unhealthy and unsafe fascination about fire.

And your bloody mirrors!!! I've lost count of the amount of people who don't use their mirrors pull out in front of you and then drive crawl everywhere. My husband is a truck driver I've been out with him sometimes, the amount of people I've seen pull right out in front of him then stupidly put their breaks on when they finally realise he's up their butt's. Grr I watched an old lady pull out in front of him on a main highway he was doing 80 cos he was fully loaded, I couldn't believe it!!! Then she decides 50 kms in a 100km zone he almost crashed straight up her ass. As she's putting her breaks on right in front of us. Grrrrr.

Alot of new vehicle these days don't have indicators well that's what some DRIVERS !believe

My Dad educated us to drive with the admonition that everyone on the road is out to kill you. This is especially true in Christchurch where it's an article of great pride NOT to allow someone using an indicator the right of way. The very same people who do not allow indicators the right of way therefore feel no compulsion to use an indicator as ( in Christchurch) it's use is deemed redundant by such people.

And how did the idiot idea of indicating right to go THROUGH a roundabout start? I have flipped the bird sooo many times to idiots who do this because stopping for nothing pisses me off.

Gotta love the psyhic drivers you're supposed to guess where they're going 🧙‍♀️🧙‍♀️

Aren't indicators optional extras??? Seems that way!

And turn your lights on!

Some sound advice

Its car bling!

Oldies should have O plates and people with eye problems and dirty glasses and fogged up dirty windshields should have S plates

I hear you load and clear Fran and NZ Police. Coming home from Albany yesterday, behind learner driver thinks it 40 on the motorway, went to move other lane what Pratt do, moved over no indication, no nothing. Every time I tried switch lanes it was like ok she indicated so I switch to. Final got past him at Esmonde Rd Lights. He held up outside lane doing same thing. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
