Empty roads during Coronavirus lockdown

Jono Galuszka Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Good morning neighbours,

We hope you are all staying warm and dry on this rainy second day of self-isolation.

The streets are very empty with most people, including roading contractors, not working. But planning for the new highway to replace the Manawatū Gorge road is still happening.

Will you make a submission on the new highway? And how empty have the streets been in your neighbourhood since the lockdown began?

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
