A Transport Ministry report shows that 642 people died between 2005 and 2009 in crashes where high-risk drivers were at fault. The report defines high-risk drivers as those: Disqualified from driving or without driver licences With previous speed and alcohol offences Who were engaging in risky behaviour (such as driving while drunk, escaping the police or illegal street racing) at the time of the crash. The report also shows that young drivers caused a significant number of crashes, accounting for 53 percent of at-fault drivers in fatal crashes when counted with high-risk drivers. Transport Minister Steven Joyce says the government is taking steps to ensure reckless and young drivers don t put others at risk. Its Safer Journeys road safety strategy includes: A zero drink-drive limit for young drivers and repeat drink drivers Proposal to raise the driving age and double prison sentences for dangerous drivers who cause death Tougher licensing tests for new drivers Car locks that prevent drunk drivers from driv- ing. The ministry is also investigating the feasi- bility of introducing vehicle power restric- tions for young drivers. Holden out for a classic but the kennel still does the job ME AND MY WHEELS with Kerikeri artist Marika Jones ' It can carry lots of stuff. I can pack it full of big paintings, my boat sail and the rubbish for the tip (not all at once though!) ' Marika Jones Spacious: Marika Jones with co-drivers Pete and Doug. Photo: EMMA GODWIN Where do you work? In my studio at home. What type of vehicle do you own? A Toyota Harrier. What do you like about your vehicle? It can carry lots of stuff. I can pack it full of big paintings, my boat sail and the rubbish for the tip (not all at once though!). What do you dislike about your vehicle? It always looks dirty. It is covered in super- market trolley scratches and dents from the boat boom. It is strewn with shellac spills and doggie paw prints. What type of vehicle would you like? An old classic Holden and a sports car, but I d like them both to be converted to a hybrid. How many kilo- metres do you travel in your vehicle each week? 80km on average. What is your favour- ite road journey? Through central Otago in Autumn. It s like driv- ing through a picture book. Stunning. What is your least favourite road jour- ney? Auckland southern motorway in rush hour -- actually, at any time of the day. What is the Far North's most danger- ous road, bridge or intersection? The crazy hump bridges just outside of Kawakawa. How do you amuse yourself on long road trips? I listen to comedian podcasts like Ricky Gervais or Flight of the Conchords. What sort of driver are you? Too fast (naughty). What irritates you most about the way other people drive? Drivers who are too slow and those who don t use their indicator. What is your favour- ite petrol station in the Far North? BP in Kerikeri because it s big, easy and friendly (like most of my friends). What do you keep in your glove compart- ment? A small goods store and 10 phone chargers, none of which work on my phone. How have your accessorised your vehicle? Dog paraphernalia. My car is a dog kennel on wheels!
