A 66-year-old man was seriously injured after colliding with a tractor on Oroua Road north of Palmerston North.

The accident happened about 5:20pm last night.

Feilding sergeant Dave Burmeister said the man appeared to have dropped the bike in an effort to avoid a collision, and in doing so slid and hit the side of a tractor mowing the grass verge.

The man was taken to Palmerston North Hospital with serious leg, arm and neck injuries.

The cause of the crash is not known.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
