From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 16 September 2014

In 2004, the editor of Tauranga's Sun Live newspaper wrote a column taking a swipe at driving standards.

Ten years later, with Tauranga expanding rapidly and with significant changes to driver training and licensing, has the standard of driving improved at all? Brian Rogers thinks not.
