Main Road...Nah!

Since when is Cambridge Road a “main road”. Sure it’s a through road and sure it’s busy these days but Cambridge Road is not a main road. It has a speed limit of 60kph (although plenty of idiots speed far in excess of that) and it comes as no surprise that many drivers crash there. Not looking ahead, impatient, no indicating, following too close and so on. NZ drivers are the authors of their own misfortune! SLOW DOWN, LOOK AHEAD FURTHER and DON’T FOLLOW SO CLOSE!
