Although they may joke on the billboards, this is an increasing and very real problem in the Waikato region.
I am referring to the danger of Auckland / city people fleeing the hussle and bustle of the city who drive through this region to get to the beach or wherever they are headed.
As a resident of Waikato (oh and I grew up and love Auckland though!), I am very aware of this growing problem of city people driving fast and intentionally through our region. They appear to be very focussed on getting to their destination and often wish to get there as soon as possible.
I just wish to warn you to take care while driving this region, take care of the locals and take care of the traffic racing through on our straight roads. They often travel too fast. There are many accidents on our roads.
