From The Panel, 4:40 pm on 30 April 2019

The Ministry of Transport has confirmed that April has been the deadliest month on the roads in 10 years. Forty-five people have died this month and 137 so-far this year. The usual reasons have been given - distraction and speed. Race car driver Greg Murphy is calling on more driver training but, road safety advocate Clive Matthew-Wilson says that would be ineffective. Journalist, Rod Vaughan's looked into New Zealand's roads and concluded that the conditions are appalling.
