Smart Politics from National

Giving Police back their discretion regarding speeding infringements is smart politics.

This issue has always niggled all New Zealander's - who cannot accept the distinction between 109 and 111km per hour as regards road safety. Or better, between the road holding of a 5series BMW at 111 and a hotted up Impreza lowered in the mate's garage, with no shocks and poor brakes at 99 km per hour.

This speeding issue always looked like nanny state nitpicking and revenue gathering by Labour.

Then for the triple whammy the recent indiscretions in Ministerial limousines for Clark and the GG demolish the slogans from the simpletons at the LTSA that "Speed kills".
