Petition: Don’t ticket the innocent, keep the 10km/h speed tolerance

Title image

Every motorist has accidentally crept a few km/h over the posted speed limit.  Even using cruise control will see cars drift up when going down a hill.  But the Police have announced that they are introducing a zero tolerance policy that will see thousands of New Zealanders fined for going only one or two kms over the posted limit.  Police Minister Stuart Nash needs to stop this nasty revenue grab.

Petition: The Government and the Police should stick with the 10km/h speed tolerance so that innocent motorists aren't used as cash cows for accidental speed incursions.
