CCTV footage- Car accident in intersection between Market Rd/Great South Rd, 1:00am-2:00am, 31 May 2020

Ankit Sharma made this Official Information request to Auckland Transport

The request was refused by Auckland Transport.

From: Ankit Sharma

Dear Auckland Transport,

I am writing to request CCTV footage at an intersection between Market Rd/Great south Rd, On the lights between 1:00am-2:00am on the 31st of May 2020.

I was involved in a major accident resulting in my vehicle being severely damaged.

The other vehicle which is a Grey Nissan Murano Station Wagon is refusing to cover the damages of my vehicle although they have gone through a red light which resulted the crash. My vehicle is a White BMW 320d. I am not sure if this location is under your jurisdiction but in particular I am looking for the speed at which the other vehicle was travelling at and if they were crossing at a red light, the police had also not made it at the time of the accident so I am requesting any working camera footage. This footage would help me a lot as it will be proof shown that the other vehicle was in the wrong. Shown to the police and Insurance company.

If you are not able to release the footage I understand that this may be a pain to go over previous footage, but I thank you for complying with me.

Yours faithfully,

Ankit Sharma

We are unable to provide you with the information you asked for


On 23/06/2020 you asked for CCTV footage at an intersection between Market
Road/Great south Road, on the lights between 1:00am-2:00am on the 31st of
May 2020.
I am sorry to hear about the major accident you were in and the damage to
your vehicle. 


CCTV footage is overwritten automatically after a certain time period
(usually 5-7 days). We have checked our system and I can confirm that the
footage you have asked for has been overwritten. Your request is therefore
refused under section 17(e) of the Local Government Official Information
and Meetings Act 1987 (LGOIMA), as the footage doesn’t exist. 


We understand that this isn’t the outcome you hoped for and I am sorry I
couldn't assist you on this occasion.


You are able to ask the Ombudsman to review how we’ve responded to your
official information request. You can contact the Ombudsman at
[1] or freephone 0800 802 602.


Ngā mihi
