Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 1 August 2011, amend the Land Transport (Offences and Penalties) Regulations 1999.

The amendments specify new penalties with respect to Land Transport Rule: Operator Licensing 2007. That rule contains new requirements for communications and in-vehicle security systems for improving the safety of taxi drivers and passengers.

The amendments also correct typographical errors in the regulations and remove a reference in regulation 10 to a draft provision that was not enacted.
