Letters to the Editor

Letter: Our beating heart Letter: Show us the facts please, minister Letter: Urgent action needed on legal highs Letter: Students need to be treated equally Letter: Ko deserves funding while finding feet Letter: Policy should always beat popularity Letter: Growth in bike use can only be good Letter: Provinces forgotten come election time Letter: PM should reveal his incomes, taxes Letter: More bikes good for car drivers

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.
