Vehicle standards map available

Posted by on 30 September 2014

These documents have been prepared by the Ministry of Transport, with the help of the NZ Transport Agency and ACC, and with input from other stakeholders. Developing the Vehicle Standards Map is part of Safer Journeys, the government’s road safety strategy to 2020.

The vehicle standards map is a document that describes the vehicle technologies and performance standards that government transport officials believe have the greatest potential to improve the safety and resource efficiency of vehicles in New Zealand. Many of these vehicle features are based on new technology or research and are only just beginning to appear in the market.

The vehicle standards inventory is a large table listing all the significant vehicle technologies and performance standards relating to safety and resource efficiency that transport officials are aware of. The Vehicle Standards Map was developed by selecting the most promising features from this list.
