These bad cars are definitely to blame. It is always them that crash into trees or stationery vehicles or lose control on bends. No human intervention in any os these cases. The same cars don't know not to run red lights. The car makers need to be more accountable :)

Not another one!

It's high time the authorities started fining these bad cars to the max. The fine goes toward paying for the damage the car caused, and the car gets crushed. Bad car.

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
