What causes traffic accidents in Wellington? Isi t just about a failure to look?

Interesting data released by NZTA showing that too many accidents are happening because people aren't looking. This is a difficult issue - there obviously needs to be some personal responsibility exercised but we obviously need to do more as a Council (with support from NZTA) to make our streets safer.

We are looking at further speed reductions and part of the answer still comes down to removing some vehicular traffic off the road through mode shift. How do we do this? Make public transport better and ensure that motorists pay the proper cost to drive.
