Land Transport Amendment Bill

Proposed amendments

Hon Gerry Brownlee, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 5(2), new section 56(2A)

In clause 5(2), new section 56(2A), replace section 72(1)(c) (page 3, line 13) with section 72(1)(b) to (e).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper makes a technical amendment to a cross-reference in new section 56(2A). The amendment ensures that, regardless of the provision under which a person is required to provide a blood specimen, if the result of the person’s blood test indicates that the person drove or attempted to drive a motor vehicle on a road with a proportion of alcohol in his or her blood that was within the infringement offence range, the person will have committed an infringement offence.
