A 34-year-old man crashed his motorbike and suffered serious spinal injuries while trying to take a bend near Tongaporutu yesterday.

He was treated by paramedics at the scene then transferred to Taranaki Base Hospital by the Taranaki rescue helicopter.

 A second minor crash occurred in the tail of traffic caused by the first crash where a horse truck collided with a small sports car.

No-one was injured in the second incident.

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.
