INTERSECTION CRASHES

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeX01MEo7MQ#t=14

We don’t often thank Auckland Transport for spending our rates in vast quantities, but their latest safety video is good: over 27,000 intersection crashes involving over 7,000 injuries – big numbers. Most happen in commuter rush hours of course (that’s most of the time in Auckland) and 30% are caused by restricted or learner drivers. Watch those pesky traffic lights, they’re not just for the other guy, or you’ll pay the price – $150 instant fine and 20 demerit points – and if you’re really unlucky, you’ll be calling Crash Management’s emergency line too. Drive carefully Auckland!

    Interesting stats, and a good proportion of those crashes would have been my clients! Lucky we have the Crash Team to take care of all the repairs and logistics so we (and our clients) don’t have all the organising hassles. Thanks
