Car fire on Hewletts Road

A car fire on Hewletts Road caused minor traffic delays this morning.

Northern Fire Communications shift manager Jaron Phillips says a car caught fire in the Tauranga-bound lane, between Totara Street and the Tauranga Harbour Bridge.

Jaron says fire crews were called to deal with a fire in the engine compartment.

The car has since been removed from the road.

Those red police cars are a waste of money. They are nowhere near as noticeable as the traditional police cars. How can the police justify wasting money like this when they are so stretched for resources? Is it driven by the traffic fetish some police bosses have at the expense of solving real crime like burglary on our homes? What disgraceful poor judgement.
