Last Chance To Comment On Road Rules

19 September 2001

The Land Transport Safety Authority (LTSA) is reminding road users that time is running out quickly for those wanting to make a submission on possible changes to New Zealand’s traffic rules.

The official deadline for comment on the Road User Rule consultation paper is September 21. The paper can be viewed at www.ltsa.govt.nz, and last minute submissions can be made via e-mail.

The consultation paper highlights six areas where the LTSA suggests a change in traffic law may be beneficial from a safety perspective. These include the use of scooters and skateboards on footpaths and roads, rules for driving around cycle lanes, giving way at pedestrian crossings, changing give way rules, traffic behaviour at roundabouts and extending the time during which headlights must be operated.

Feedback from consultation will be incorporated into a public draft of the Road User Rule, scheduled for release next year.
