Associate Transport Minister Craig Foss says a new Speed Management Guide released today will modernise New Zealand’s approach to managing speed and enable a limit of 110km/h on some roads.
"Accessorise - Wear Your Seatbelt"
"No Call - No Text - No Ticket"
"2yo - Most children injured are toddlers, aged 2yrs in driveway run overs. "
"Driving 5km/h above the speed limit in a 60km/h zone has the same level of casualty risk as driving at the New Zealand drink-driving limit (blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 50 mg/100 ml)."
"Driving hands-free is no safer than holding a phone while talking, since the workload on the brain is the same."
