Letters to the Editor

It should be one law for all Lucky time to be choosing new flag Could MPs live off the pension? Mountainbikers have many options Car key grabbing thuggery in disguise Defence of charter schools laughable Stay away from indoor farming Thanks for the great service Dog owners not the only polluters Two options to help road users

OPINION: The Dominion Post reports in an article outlining the key changes to the WOF system that: ''It would be unlikely that the police would have the resources to jack up your car and check the brake linings on the side of the road.''

The checking of brake linings is not and never has been part of a WOF check. The only exception would be if the brake pads could be viewed and their condition established without removing a wheel during the check.
