New Zealand has seen a tragic Easter weekend on its roads, and Police extends its sympathies to the families and friends of the eight people who died this holiday period.

Any number of deaths is too many, but this is the highest number of deaths for the Easter holiday period in more than a decade which is an unacceptable outcome.

The aftermath of a fatal car crash extends further than just the families involved.
