Is the 'zero tolerance' speed campaign working?


Police Minister Michael Woodhouse has admitted he had concerns over the summer speed enforcement message before it went public, saying it was confusing and ambiguous.

Mr Woodhouse says that he had asked the police to officially review the public messages that underpinned the Christmas and New Year road safety campaign, which has been criticised by the public and other agencies.

The minister said he was also concerned about the number of foreign drivers involved in serious and fatal road crashes.

Seventeen people were killed on the roads over the Christmas-New Year, more than double the 2013-14 toll of seven.
