' Tired Drivers Urged to Rest'

  BackSouth of Waikanae

Later the same day, the driver of a north-bound car veered over the centreline and collided with two south-bound cars on State Highway 1, south of Waikanae. Traffic was delayed for several hours while emergency services cleared the road. The drivers and passengers of all three cars suffered minor injuries.

Acting Senior Sergeant Stu Lawrie said drivers should be sensible and pull over and have a rest if they felt tired. They should also take advantage of 'driver reviver' services which operate regularly on State Highway 1 in Kapiti during the holiday weekends.
