The situation is getting worse, motorists have so many distractions now with personal and in- car technology, it's only a matter of time before you and I are victims too. ....... ! What are the shiny arsed so called law enforcement doing about it ? These two guys were on the carriageway because the Police are too busy elsewhere getting their monthly quotas in to carry out highways patrol duties. The Highways Patrol officers like Paul see the appalling standard of driving, misuse of the highway everyday, and are powerless to do anything about it, but go out everyday to assist the public in driving and getting to their destination safely, I salute them all and hope Paul makes a full recovery, but offer my sincere condolences to his mates family, terribly sad and needless .

Unless you have inside information regarding the crash this probably isn't the right time or place to be saying the driver was doing anything wrong or to be questioning whether local police were doing their job properly.

Nearly every forum is getting worse for pointing the finger and apportioning blame without the facts and it doesnt really help anyone.

Dear me, If it wasn't for bad luck he'd have no luck at all. Hope for a speedy recovery.

A tragic chain of events.
Here's hoping Paul makes a speedy recovery and condolences to the Family of his colleague.

Really shocking news! Paul is a top guy and I stayed a night at his campsite just before returning to NZ. He wouldn't take any money for my night's stay....a farewell present he said. Thoughts are with him for a speedy recovery and condolences to colleagues family.
