Land Transport Act

Joseph made this Official Information request to Phil Twyford

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Joseph to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Joseph

Dear Phil Twyford,

I am writing regarding the road user rule, specifically section 1.8 and the line

A person is not in breach of this rule if that person proves that the act or omission complained of—
(a)
took place in compliance with the directions of an enforcement officer, a parking warden, a traffic signal, or a traffic sign; or
(b)
in the case of an act or omission done by an enforcement officer or a parking warden, was necessary in the execution of the person’s duty.

To your knowledge, why were parking wardens included in this section?

Yours faithfully,

Jacob.

On behalf of Hon Phil Twyford, thank you for your email.

 

While the Minister considers all correspondence to be important and all
messages are carefully read and considered, it is not possible to provide
a personal response to every email which is received.

 

Where the Minister has portfolio responsibility for the issues that you
have raised, your correspondence will be responded to where appropriate.
If your email falls outside of Minister Twyford’s portfolio
responsibilities, we will transfer it to the appropriate office.

 

Invitation and meeting requests will be processed as soon as possible and
we will contact you to advise of the outcome.

 

If you are a constituent writing about a Te Atatu electorate issue, you
will get a response shortly.

 

Thank you again for taking the time to write.

Dear Jacob

Thank you for your email of 15 May 2019 in which you submitted an Official Information Act (OIA) request as follows:

“I am writing regarding the road user rule, specifically section 1.8 and the line

A person is not in breach of this rule if that person proves that the act or omission complained of—
(a)
took place in compliance with the directions of an enforcement officer, a parking warden, a traffic signal, or a traffic sign; or
(b)
in the case of an act or omission done by an enforcement officer or a parking warden, was necessary in the execution of the person’s duty.

To your knowledge, why were parking wardens included in this section?”

The information you have requested is believed to be more closely connected with the functions of Hon Julie Anne Genter, Associate Minister of Transport. Your request is therefore being transferred under Section 14(b)(ii) of the OIA to Hon Julie Anne Genter for a response.

The office of Hon Julie Anne Genter will contact you in due course regarding this request.
