We need better rest stops!

We need your help Ladies. One of the WiRT objectives is to make the country’s rest stops a safer place for those of you out on the road, keeping the wheels turning.

Where are the best rest stops for trucks in New Zealand? – ones with good toilets, good parking and adequate lighting. If you have a favourite stop on your run, let us know. If there are some that need improving, share that with us too. We need your input to start the wheels of change turning so please add your comments below and let’s talk…!
