Letters to the Editor

Remember to keep your distance Think hard before you judge people Context needed over Sydney siege Police shouldn't have apologised Airport costs hammer ratepayers Argument to merge doesn't stack up Praise and support for former MP's actions Social housing a poor result Speed signs add to confusion Top-down model doomed to fail

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.
