Prosecutions for vehicle accidents where pedestrians were killed

Stephen Davis made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Response to this request is long overdue. By law New Zealand Police should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Stephen Davis

Dear New Zealand Police,

In each of the last five calendar years (2008 to 2012):

(a) How many pedestrians were killed in road accidents?
(b) How many pedestrians were seriously injured in road accidents?
(c) How many of the accidents in (a) resulted in a prosecution of a driver for causing the death, and how many of those prosecutions resulted in conviction?
(d) How many of the accidents in (b) resulted in a
prosecution of a driver for causing the injury, and how many
of those prosecutions resulted in conviction?
(e) How many infringement notices were issued or prosecutions made for offences by pedestrians? Preferably broken down by the offence.
(f) How many infringement notices were issued or prosecutions made for offences by drivers against pedestrians, including the various offences that include failure to give way? Preferably broken down by the offence.

I am currently resident in New Zealand.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Davis

Dear Struan Purdie

 

 

Thank you for your email of 25 July 2013 asking for information about
prosecutions for vehicle accidents where pedestrians were killed.

 

Some of the information is not held by Police but is more closely
associated with the activities of the Ministry of Justice. I have
therefore transferred part c and d of your request to the Ministry of
Justice under to section 14 of the Official Information Act 1982.

 

You have the right to complain to the Ombudsman to seek an investigation
and review of my decision if you are not satisfied with the way I have
responded to your request.

 

 

Yours sincerely
