Zero tolerance on speeding drivers all year round as Kiwi cops get tough on motorists

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It brings an end to a long-standing convention that law enforcement would let minor speeding breaches slide.


“We don’t have a threshold,” Welch told Stuff, “we don’t have anything other than the speed limit.

Previously, besides zero tolerance long weekends, it was understood police could exercise discretion up to 10kmh over the speed limit.
