Police attack the cause of the problem

Unlike the scatter gun approach to “speed” being the cause of many accidents, it is welcome to see the Police in Christchurch taking a specific remedy to a specifically defined problem and cause - tailgaters causing crashes.

Sergeant John Hamilton of Christchurch Police is quoted:

“We are going where crashes are and the motorway is a grade-two crash area (grade one being the worst).

“We’re doing it as a lead-up to wet weather. When we get rain, that’s when crashes occur.”

As regular readers of this blog will know, repetitive failure is effectively addressed when the specific cause of failure is identified and addressed. Anything else may look like you’re fixing it but it’s really a WOMBAT.
