Revenue gathering at its worst

As if VTNZ has not got enough to spend its taxpayer funded monies on, they have recently been out to Durville Island to do their twice yearly WOF checks on local vehicles at great expense.

There were only 19 vehicles in this check and any that failed need to be shipped back to Havelock to get a recheck within 28 days. Some would wonder why put these vehicles to the test - only 40 people live on this island and there is only 75Km of dirt roads!

I suppose next there will be regular booze buses and speed cameras in umarked cars. And the local council will be out any time soon to grade the roads...
