What Transport did I use in the holidays? by Jackline

Hhhhmmmm what transport did I use in the holidays? Oh now I remember I used a car, train, bus and all sorts of different kinds of transport. Imagine a world without any cars, trains,buses and other transport that can’t carry you from place to place. We won’t hear any of that,
BEEP! BEEP! or Broom Brooooom! and it would be a pain because it would take you forever to walk to a place that is far far away. 
Well we are so lucky to have transport to travel around the world and go to places that are really far away in about a few hours. Now I am going to tell you what transports I used in the holidays.

In the first week of the holidays I went to lots of places using different means of  transport. I went to Pac N Save in my mother’s van then I returned  home and packed the shopping away. A few hours later I asked my mum if she could dropp me off to Pukekohe. She said ‘’no’’. 
The reason she refused to take the van was because she wanted to save some gas, so we walked to the bus stop and went on the bus to the train station.
This means of transportation was cheaper for our family.

The Importance of Transport by James

  On Saturday morning I wanted to go to Glen Innes to get some milk with my bike so I rode to the shops. As I was riding to the shops I  saw heaps of traffic. After shopping I went on my bike back to Glen Innes just for a play around so I was biking around and having fun. Later in the  evening I went back home on my bike safely. 
A bike is a great way of transporting myself from one place to another.
   While me and my family were playing cards my uncle rang my mum and said if we all wanted to go to their house? 
So my said, ‘yes.’
But my grandpa and my grandma wanted to stay home.  My family wanted to go so we all went in the car. When we got there my aunt was there. They all stayed until Sunday.

A car is a great vehicle to get to places very fast.

Cross Safely by Jasmine

Why Pedestrian Crossing is Safer Now than the Past

In the past roads were made of gravel, which made it unsafe for cars and people. Back then rules were needed.

Now these days, there are safer ways to have less accidents and injuries. Better ways for cars and people to share the road. Less people are killed. Schools all over the world have systems running, called a Pedestrian Crossing.

Today, there are zebra crossings on a Pedestrian Crossing, which stand out, making the crossing easier to see.

There are also  striped black and white poles, to show where the crossing is. On most of those poles are bright round lights.

Bright highlighted  signs called lollipops are used to stop cars so people can cross. They are controlled by children in schools, who are old enough. The lollipops are hooked onto the stripped poles.

The children who carry out Pedestrian Crossing wear bright neon vests that are visible to all vehicles. There are also raincoats for different weather conditions.

So Road patrols are a safer way for all humans to cross and safer for cars and people to be on the road.

How I got around in the holidays? by Zeppalin

What goes beep beep, drives on wheels and which has four or two doors? CARS.

There are many ways to transport but the only one that I like to be transported in is the car because it gets around faster and quicker. Even though it pollutes the air it is still much better.The safest way to transport is the truck, car or bus. The unsafe way to transport yourself is rollerblades or bikes because when you fall off you can graze yourself and hurt yourself badly.  

 The colour of my mum’s cars is purplish and blue. It is called a Legnam and it feels nice and comfortable when you sit inside.  My cousins and I walked everywhere else like the shop and to other family’s houses. I biked to the shop to get some stuff. I went with my mum and brother also my uncle and traveled safely in the car.

It was great to see the family and this was made possible because of transport like cars.

Ready to go by Mehrsa

“Mehrsa, get ready to go,” my dad called from the kitchen.

It was 2.30pm, Monday, 20 of April, 2014 and we decided to go to my aunt’s house and stay there for a week. We used our Nissan Primera 2002 to go there. My aunt’s house is in Papatoetoe so during the drive, my dad had to stop once at the petrol station for fuel. After we got there, we used my aunt’s Opel Zafira Tourer van to go to McDonald’s for lunch.
