Instead of huge squandering on Wokeism?
Frustrations are growing among New Zealand motorists as potholes continue to pop up all across the country.
This week, Central Tyre and Automotive manager Ryan Merson told AM his Taranaki garage on Friday alone fixed between 30 and 40 cars with rims and tyres wrecked by potholes in the region.
Following the interview with Merson, AM’s email inbox was flooded with furious messages about the state of New Zealand’s roads — with Taranaki locals saying they’re having to cross centrelines to avoid potholes.
“I’ve lived in Europe and the [United] States and only in Detroit have I seen worse roads,” one e-mail said.
Automobile Association (AA) road safety spokesperson Dylan Thomsen said the frustration was unprecedented.
