Poll: Is it time to lower the speed limit on NZ's open roads?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Long-term road safety data from NZTA suggests speed limits on almost 90 per cent of the country's roads are too high and should be lowered.

In 2019 so far, 172 people have been killed on New Zealand's roads, six more than at the same time last year.

Ministry of Transport data for 2016, the most recent available on its website, makes for sobering reading – 328 deaths from 286 fatal road crashes, or 0.9 deaths for every 10,000 vehicles.
