This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 5 August 2004, amend regulation 3 of the Land Transport (Storage and Towage Fees for Impounded Vehicles) Regulations 1999 (
“the principal regulations”), by increasing the towage fees payable in respect of vehicles that are seized and impounded under section 96 or section 122 of the Land Transport Act 1998.
The increased fees apply only to vehicles that are seized and impounded on or after 5 August 2004.
If a vehicle was seized and impounded before 5 August 2004, the fees payable under regulation 3 of the principal regulations prior to 5 August 2004 continue to apply.
