More than 1600 utes, tractors, trucks and tradies' vans brought traffic to a standstill across Northland as the rural sector sent a clear message about what it sees as a rising tide of government over-regulation.

The biggest protest yesterday took place in Whangārei, where an estimated 600 vehicles, including at least 70 tractors, drove in convoy from Barge Park through the city centre to Okara Park.

Meanwhile about 450 vehicles, plus 40 tractors, travelled from Kerikeri Sport Complex to the town centre and back via the Heritage Bypass.

With so many taking part the first utes got back to the sports complex before the tractors had even left the gates. Traffic was near-gridlocked from noon until 1.45pm but the atmosphere in the Kerikeri CBD was festive with footpaths crowded with spectators......
