What a load of rubbish you talk.. I go over the Kaimais quite regularly in my truck and have never seen such rubbish.. If a truck tire was nearly rolling off the front wheel it would actually come off... and they dont seem to do they?

hapukafin, and Capt Kaveman, and agree with By About That, DO YOU by chance drive a truck,you always seem to have a say when there is a accident, this was a car trailer for gosh sakes, and by the way all Heavy trucks are now 90 ks speed limited, and by the way sometimes this is a real pain as you cannot get a run at hills and there are some steep and winding ones out there with a big load as 60 tons it should have been left alone as said by a inspector its a pain, this is politics, speed does not kill, and by the way that corner in the picture is the worst, this needs fixing but NZTA says it has NO Funding, you know why, we are giving it away free to you know who, by the $$$$millions thats why,Thankyou 10-4 out.phew.

I see the usual bloggers, moaners have had their say. Yes, its an "accident". They happen. Get a job and stop winging about everything that gets put on the news page, Capt_Kaveman in particular.

Truck speed between Tauranga and Ahthenree, and over the Kaiamais should be 10kph slower and cars be 10 kph faster.Ive seen truck tyres near rolling off the front wheel coming over the Kaiamais.
