Let's say goodbye to tests at the Basin Plenty of sacrifice in protection cause The Bard essential to education system History coming back to bite us Too easy to cast roads in bad light We could always raise the Basin Mainstreaming puts strain on teachers What does the future hold for te reo Maori?

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.
