Thanks

All the locals have no hestitation in using this road. People that are not familar with a windy new zealand road should allow the faster traffic to pass. Those people that like going fast, be warned there is one "Black Spot" that has over the years claimed many a car. For those people that drive to the conditions and their ability you have no fear what so every this is a lovely scenic route that cuts off 20 minutes in travelling time.

If you are driving a automatic car, for heavens sake put the car into second gear when you are going down hill, and don't rest your foot on the brake.
