Visiting Driver Safety

Serious road crashes involving overseas licence holders are traumatic for those involved and can evoke a strong response and negatively impact on community support for tourism. TIA participated in the successful Visiting Drivers project, led by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), which delivered a range of actions to keep overseas drivers safe, from education to road improvements. TIA established and manages the DriveSafe website, a resource for international drivers planning New Zealand driving holidays.
