RACS agrees that it is appropriate that New Zealand's procedures for assessing safe speeds are updated to reflect advances in methodology and that ambiguous elements from the 2003 Rule are clarified to avoid the inconsistent application of speed limits across the country. There are, however, some elements of the proposed Rule that RACS does not support - namely, the provision of a 110km/h speed limit, and changes with regards to repeater speed limit signage.
RACS does not have any specific comments on proposals 1, 5, 6 and 7. Our feedback on proposals 2, 3 and 4 are provided throughout the submission.
