Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

    I was driving along Collingwood Road about 1.45pm and it was pouring with rain and the traffic was heavy, and the motorists were driving like lunetics, I saw only one other car with their lights on, they were speeding
    as usual and overtaking when they shouldn’t around blind corners. The visibility was bad. I came home and told my husband that the cars were all speeding , had no lights on and driving recklessly. I’m not surprised there was an accident. Collingwood Road needs Policing. The cars are speeding well over 100kl daily in a 50kl area.
