New Zealanders accept 104 kph holiday speed tolerance

New Zealanders accept more than oppose the police practice of imposing a 104 kph open road speed tolerance limit during holiday periods.

As the nation heads toward the major Easter and Anzac Day holiday break, an independently conducted Horizon Research survey finds 42.6% of adults nationwide support imposing a 104 kph tolerance during holiday periods only while 30% oppose or strongly oppose.

Asked if the 104kph tolerance should be imposed year round, opposition rises to 37% while 42.6% support the idea.

Most Kiwis also do not want to see the 110 kph tolerance increased year round or increased outside of holiday periods.

54.1% are against a 110 kph speed tolerance year-round, 20.1% for.

54% also oppose increasing the 110 kph speed tolerance outside holiday periods, while 20.7% support this.

Horizon Research’s Manager, Grant McInman, says there is no huge opposition to reducing the speed tolerance during holiday periods.

By income, those most opposed to lower holiday period speed tolerances earned $200,000 or more a year: 61.2% of this group oppose or strongly oppose the lower holiday period tolerance while only 20.1% support it.

Horizon surveyed 3,104 respondents aged 18+. Weighted to represent the adult population the survey has a maximum margin of error of +/- 1.7% at a 95% confidence level. 91.2% of respondents had a valid licence to drive in New Zealand.
