Highest road toll in 27 years caused by underfunding
Judith Collins has to reverse Police underfunding with the worst Queen’s Birthday road toll in 27 years coinciding with a funding cut for road safety and 100 fewer police officers on the road, says Labour’s Police spokesman Stuart Nash.
“It’s time for Judith Collins to admit she’s got it wrong. In the past two years there has been a cut in road safety funding. Between 2013 and 2015 the road toll has increased by 68, making us one of the only countries where road deaths are rising.
