Turtles have been found with plastic straws stuck in their nose. In a country of 4 million people, New Zealanders use 540 million plastic straws

LVVTA Certification process needs to change

The LVVTA certification process for modifying vehicles needs to be changed to become more user freindly and realistic to achieve. At the moment the certification process does not take into account people wishing to drive there cars in between modifying them and the price does not reflect the time taken by certifiers to check modifications.  It is in all our interests to ensure the process is safe and effective and acheivable by vechical modifiers.  My plans to put foward to LVVTA and LTA -That c
