"Paxster" electric vehicles - hazards and legislation

Cody C made this Official Information request to New Zealand Post Limited

The request was successful.

From: Cody C

Dear New Zealand Post Limited,

I am requesting information relating to the "Paxster", or electric delivery vehicles, now used by NZ Post. Specifically I am looking for:

1. Number of crashes and / or injuries involving staff and / or members of the public with "Paxster" vehicles since their introduction, as well as bicycles, along with a brief summary, grouped by year (up to a maximum of the past 5 years, or less if the information is not available)

2. Any plans, or documents, used to eliminate, isolate and minimise the hazards that may pertain to the operations of such a vehicle

3. What legislation enables the referenced vehicles to be operated on footpaths?
3.a. If referring to Land Transport (Road User) Rule 2004, section 2.13(2), which mentions "moped or motorcycle[s]" as being exempt from the prohibition of driving on footpaths, please clarify the registration status of said vehicles (with particular attention to vehicle registration number JDZ12 which is registered as a "light van") as it would seem the above exemption would not apply.
3.b. If this information cannot be provided by New Zealand Post, please transfer this section of the request to the appropriate regional authority (as required).

in accordance with the Official Information Act 1982.

For the purposes of the Act, I am a New Zealand citizen and residing in New Zealand at the time of making this request. You generally have 20 working days to respond to this notice, as required by law. Your response will be published publicly on the fyi.org.nz website.

Yours faithfully,

Cody C
