From: Oscar

Dear New Zealand Police,

I request statistics for the past 5 years on how many people have been given warnings or infringements for breaching part 2, 2.1 of the Land Transport Act.

Specifically breaches of the following

(1) A driver, when driving, must at all times drive as near as practicable to the left side of the roadway unless this rule otherwise provides.

(2) If a driver’s speed, when driving, is such as to impede the normal and reasonable flow of traffic, that driver must, as soon as is reasonably practicable, move the vehicle as far as practicable to the left side of the roadway when this is necessary to allow following traffic to pass.


Yours faithfully,
