Research and reduced road crashes

M.R.M. made this Official Information request to New Zealand Police

Currently waiting for a response from New Zealand Police, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: M.R.M.

Dear New Zealand Police,

In a newspaper article (refer https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/1226528...) it was stated that police are targeting that bracket of 1 to 10kmh above the posted speed limit as research showed that by targeting the average mean speed, it would reduce crashes.

Please provide me with copies of the research that the police relied upon when a) deciding to target the above quoted bracket of drivers, and b) commenting to the media as also above quoted.

This is an Official Information request.

Kindly note that my preference is to receive the information through publication of it at the FYI website.

I am confirm that I am a New Zealand citizen, and I am therefore entitled to receive the requested information.

Yours faithfully,

M.R.M.
