Holiday Safety Quiz

Christmas and New Year are on their way, and in New Zealand it’s one scorching hot summer. Humid as well, about 56% humidity. So during the day, we sweat a lot. Not much rain in sight.

So I take to the pools to swim or the beach. Or perhaps we take a long drive and go for a trip inside your country.

To be honest, it is not a good sign that some people have died on New Zealand roads and that could all be avoidable if only people would take care. A lower road toll would be nice, this year, 2017 has been the highest for many years, no deaths on the road would be even perfect.

It seems that people have been listening to take care in the water. Again that is not enough. We want to prevent disaster any where where possible.

  1. 10/10 Great quiz, Pamela! I always swim against the life guards. Not only because I rely on them, but I noticed that there are less waves and undercurrents. Maybe they put the posts in such spots so they can move faster in the water, I’m not sure.
