Will our school children get home healthy and safe?

Work Safe is promising adults to 'get you home healthy and safe', but little is being done for children who walk or cycle to school.  Lucinda Rees from NZ School Speeds says the Government is irresponsible, as there are no consistent rules in place to get school children home 'healthy and safe' and is calling on them to put rules place to protect our most vulnerable road users.

Minister Bridges meets us in Auckland

On Friday Feb 12 we meet with the Minister of Transport Simon Bridges in Auckland.  There were 8 in our delegation representing organisation concerned that the footpath should not get crowded out with new vehicles.  Just that day NZ Post talked about their new delivery tractors going nation wide.

The meeting was good and one of our focus points was asking the Minister to make the NZTA Pedestrian Planning and Design Guide adopted as a standard.

Following is our briefing paper.

Media Release 30 March 2014 - Coroner blames Pedestrian for her death?

Living Streets Aotearoa is concerned that yet again a coroner’s inquest has laid the blame squarely at the foot of the dead woman. The inquest into the pedestrian death of Vanessa Green in Wellington has found no blame on the driver. It is very difficult to determine a cause of this crash or any other crash after the fact, and it is too easy to blame the victim.
