A driver of a 4WD backed into a house not once, not twice, but three times, in what is being called a "domestic related" incident.

Police were called to a car versus house on Kauri Crescent in Matamata at 2.10pm.

Senior Sergeant Shelley Begbie says a car had backed into a house three times.

"It seemed as though the incident was related to a domestic callout." 

There were no reports of injuries. 

The residents of the house didn't want to comment.

Study closely that expression "domestically related" then connect that with "the residents declined to comment" The scenario is not uncommon. Sorry mate but I don't do drugs. Never have, never would. But you keep referring to smoke which makes me wonder about you. Meanwhile, carry on merrily graunching those gears

I dont think anyone would want a car smashed thru their house or business mate... have another puff mate.

Hardly rocket science. If your shopkeeper as owner - occupier was implicated in the offence, there would certainly be no insurance payout. It seems the point was lost on you.

Really Papamoaner

So all those shop owners that are unfortunate enough to be deliberatly ram raided dont get covered by insurance? What are you smoking man???

Car versus house?

Doubtless now to become "idiot versus bank balance". No insurance company is going to pay out on a deliberate action. No brain, no pain.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
