Zero consequences for breaking COVID-19 lockdown rules ?

Sam Neighbourly Lead from Matakatia - Tindalls Beach

Drive 51km/h on a 50km/h road and you get fined $30.

Head to the gym when you've got COVID-19, don't self isolate when you're being tested or sick, risk the country's economy, peoples jobs, and possibly infecting and killing many others in a pandemic, and you get a slap on the wrist (actually no as physical violence is illegal, thus you get a free pass).

This also applies to the 30+ boats / catamarans / yachts & kayakers I keep seeing heading out and into Gulf Harbour marina on a Level 3 lockdown.

What's stopping you or I from ignoring the rules if we're sick or suspecting to be sick, and go out to have fun or do what we do, if there are no consequences at all? Lockdowns are NOT a deterrent for those who negligently break the rules. Or can we start using this excuse when we drive intoxicated?

If the PM will not answer the question (when she very well should), then maybe the Chief of Police should go live on TV and give us a proper answer as to what consequences, if any, there are for those who break a rule far serious than a 1km/h over-speed.
