NZTA Must Be Clearer With Speed And Traffic Camera Plans

Published: Mon 19 Feb 2024 11:04 AM
Commenting on NZTA’s proposal to expand the stock of its road safety cameras from 150 to potentially 800 over the next ten years, Taxpayers’ Union, Researcher, Alex Murphy, said:
“There’s no doubt that having safer roads is critically important, but this ploy from NZTA to potentially triple the number of tickets brought in per year seems more like another revenue-gathering exercise than effective road safety policy.
"How is buying cameras with heat-mapping technology to monitor the inside of a car consistent with a strictly safety-first approach?
“The Transport Minister needs to be much clearer with NZTA that their job is to deliver the most effective road safety policy – not introduce a stealth tax on New Zealand motorists."
