    I thought similarly.

    Oddly that article seemed to have upset someone at the Harold, since I attempted to post the link but the entire article had disappeared. Lots of searches wouldn't show it again, but later in the day it re-surfaced.
    "Officialdom" not taking kindly to a differing point of view?

    A well written article:

    Fines linked to earnings, and idea!

    No results from the Fin's, no reduction in the NZ numbers of fines issued!

    Yet! Undeniably something is working as the toll is trending down, (for now anyway).

    Actually a stupid idea.
    It would, once again, be a tax on the middle classes. The wealthy would have their accountants deal with it or have the family trust in place, so their earnings would be essentially zero.

    It sounds so stupid Liarbour will definitely put it in place.

    The politics of envy. The objective isn't road safety, it's punishing rich pricks for being rich. Definitely a growing trend too, we've already got dramatically increased subsidies for "underprivileged" breeding, housing and health care.

    The fact that it doesn't work is beside the point. I read a piece a couple weeks ago that demonstrated that the first year's free tertiary education "initiative" is going to benefit far more higher income families simply because they'll take advantage of it. The whole theory that lower income families' kids are disadvantaged through lack of higher education is based on the assumption that the reason for it is the already 80% subsidised cost of that education.

    Are we not lucky we live in NZ and can debate such.

    Stupid is as stupid does:

    Maybe you could define reason and objectivity! as for National/Liarbour ( I guess you meant to spell it this way)why not do away with the party system, people stand get elected, then the elected go into a cave and elect a leader, if not done within a week, they are all fired and the process starts again:


    Why not euthanasia all the rich, all the poor, all the politicians, all the lawyers, all the bankers, all the police, all academics, all the elderly, the sick, all the drug addicts, all that drain our taxes!

    Heck why not just do away with society and its rules?

    Shit if we're really lucky the Don might yet level the sphere, and we can all start again from cockroaches!

    Yep I too can come up with stupid .

    (as long as Im last man standing)

    Now as for speeding, ( speeding, in a hurry, being impatient), the young Blond Witch in a blue NIssan at the intersection of Fitzherbert ave and college street yesterday afternoon:

    I proceeded across the intersection on a Green light, she run a red, turning right, (to my left) if I had not hit the brakes my left hand truck light would have been in her left hand door, seated beside which was a blond girl aged about 3-4, not in a car seat, when I hit the horn, she flips me the bird!
    And these things breed and live among us!
    Do the kid a favor and give her to someone that deserves and will love her, the mother I presume, take out to the bush and double tap her behind the ear.

    Dear Police,

    If your going to be involved in dumb TV programs like Road Cops or Highway Patrol, hire some actors who come across as Jake

    the Muss instead of the soft cock ones you use.

    Caught a couple of mins where a cop had pulled over what was clearly a WOF failure car.

    It was an unregistered " paddock basher" and the woman driver had a suspended licence.

    Nice cop gave her a wet bus ticket telling off and followed her back to the farm.

    Should have read the riot act at stupid had her car scrapped and got someone else to pick her up.

    Anybody else here the radio this morning where some guy said "motorcyclists over 40 should have to re-sit their test once a year." This following the 13th serious bike accident in 2018.

    I think it was the breeze playing in the physio this morning (Yep over 40 and dropped my bike front end slide Nov last year first time in 25 years...body does not bounce back like it once did...been riding the whole time too )

    Its good that people who have done lots of research and study into motorcycle crashs take time out of t ring up radio stations and share their extensive knowledge, much like the news where they interview a random neighbour or passer by for their insightful comments.


    Said caller is probably a fantastic driver who never tailgates,speeds, makes poor overtaking choices or uses phone whilst driving and so on.

    The said caller was probably doing at least two of the above whilst calling the radio station
