This week marks Road Safety Week, where we take the chance to highlight ways to keep each other safe on New Zealand’s roads. This year’s theme is Save Lives, #Speakup, and the week coincides with the United Nations Global Road Safety Week. So what does road safety look like to you? #SpeakUp and post a reply below!
This year we’ve lost too many people on our roads. No death on the road is acceptable. Everyone is entitled to safe and healthy mobility. Here at AMI, we’re committed to making our communities safer for everyone. We’ve helped to fund advanced warning signs for rural intersections – so drivers get an early head’s up to slow down – as well as supporting youth training in over 80 schools through Road Safety Education (RSE) , a nationwide organisation helping young people change the way they think about road safety and lay the foundation for safe road use throughout their lives. There has been huge success through RSE’s RYDA programme and in some areas with their Good2GO programme, which is run for students at schools such as Tāmaki College in Auckland.
Road Safety Week encourages us all to take a pledge – what can we as individuals do to improve road safety? Will you avoid all mobile phone use or take more breaks during long road trips? Save Lives, #SpeakUp below and tell us what your pledge is.

For many New Zealanders, there's never been a better time to give themselves DIY bangs, a drunken bowl cut or partial shave of the head.
But worried stylists across the country are preparing for the hair-pocalypse when salons reopen. Have you resorted to cutting your own hair? How did it go?
Just a reminder that kerbside recycling has been paused and the Southern Landfill is closed, so please give your recycling a good clean and store it at home for now.
If you put any recycling bags or crates out on the street, please collect them and take them back to your home.
Rubbish will be collected as usual.
