New Zealand safer journeys Action Plan

The New Zealand Government released its Safer Journeys Action Plan 2013-15 in March. The plan includes the introduction of  random roadside drug-testing and also outlines proposals for new blood alcohol limits and getting old and unsafe cars off roads.

The action plan includes proposals for different blood alcohol limits for different drivers, such as commercial drivers, drivers with a conviction, and drivers with a certain number of demerit points, as well as for various age groups.

The government will decide early next year whether blood alcohol limits should be reduced.
