FIREWORKS

Angel from Western Springs

Hi, I am posting this to help anyone who wants to know where they stand relating to the law and fireworks. Sometimes its hard to confront people who are causing a nuisance with fireworks, especially if you are not really sure if the law supports you. So, to make it crystal clear - these are the Auckland Council Bylaws straight from their website.


Where you cannot light fireworks

You CANNOT light fireworks on council-controlled land, such as:
beaches
parks and reserves.

You are ALSO prohibited from lighting fireworks in:

forests
conservation areas
road surfaces, berm or footpath on your street.


So, there you have it guys. If you have had enough of people letting off fireworks in your street, or the playing fields, or the reserve where you live, or in ANY public park, the law is on your side if you make a complaint or ask those involved to cease.

Man fails roadside breathalyser test after using hand sanitiser

Melanie Earley Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, an Auckland man was “shocked” to learn he had failed a breathalyser test due to using hand sanitiser before being pulled over.

Ben Shivas had been driving home from work on Thursday evening when he arrived at a police checkpoint in Herne Bay.

Shivas, 26, was surprised to learn he had failed the roadside test despite not having drunk any alcohol that day.

“It was a bit of a shock, but I knew it had to be an error,” he said. “The officer taking the test questioned me about the result, and when I told her I hadn’t had any alcohol she asked if I’d used hand sanitiser recently.”
