Policy and operational data regarding the towaways from private property

Nick Coyle made this Official Information request to New Zealand Transport Agency

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Nick Coyle to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Nick Coyle

Dear New Zealand Transport Agency,

My questions refer to holders of vehicle recovery service licenses issued under the Land Transport Rule: Operator Licensing 2017. I would like information for the previous 7 years in respect of the below questions if possible.

How frequently have enforcement officers audited registers of tow authorities maintained by licensees?

How many vehicles have licensees towed from private property?

How many instances of vehicles being towed without the licensees having completed tow authorities have been identified by enforcement officers?

How many complaints have been recorded against licensees in the past 7 years?

What is the name of the licensee who has received the most complaints against him/her/it in the last 7 years?

How many complaints have NZTA investigated further in the last 7 years?

What is the name of the licensee who has had the most amount of complaints against him/her/it investigated further by NZTA in the past 7 years?

What sorts of enforcement action (such as penalties) have been issued by enforcement agents against licensees in respect of breaches of the rules?

What is the highest fee charged by a licensee to release a vehicle back to its owner known to NZTA?

Yours faithfully,

Nick Coyle

Dear Nick

 

This email acknowledges your below request for information made under the
Official Information Act 1982.

 

Your request has been forwarded to the appropriate section of Waka Kotahi

March 2021.

 

The information you have requested may contain the names and contact
details of our staff. Please let us know whether you require these names

Kia ora Nick

 

Prior to 2018, Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency had a number of business
repository systems that contained varying forms of information, including
offsite locations and manual storage. We have completed an initial scoping
of your request and it has been estimated that 550 hours of time would be
required to collate the information from those systems that fall within
scope of your below questions:

 

o How many complaints have been recorded against licensees in the past 7
years?
o How many complaints have NZTA investigated further in the last 7
years?
o What is the name of the licensee who has had the most amount of
complaints against him/her/it investigated further by NZTA in the past
7 years?
o What sorts of enforcement action (such as penalties) have been issued
by enforcement agents against licensees in respect of breaches of the
rules?

 

As readily retrievable information is only held for the previous two
years, your request for seven years of information may warrant an
extension to the 20 working days available to respond to your request, a
possible charge for the information requested, or a refusal of the
questions on the grounds of substantial collation and research. Waka
Kotahi would therefore like to provide you with an opportunity to amend or
refine the above parts of your request to a more appropriate timeframe.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you in due course.

 

Ngā mihi
