New Zealand Transport Agency survey results and new campaign released

The results of the first nationwide study of registered motor vehicle dealers’ use of vehicle safety rating labels are in.

The key finding of the study, commissioned by New Zealand Transport Agency Waka Kotahi (NZTA), was that two-thirds (66.7% percent) of the vehicles on dealers’ sites had a current safety rating label on display - which is voluntary.

This is a good result to build on, according to NZTA, who encourages all dealers to inform their customers about vehicles’ safety ratings and features, given their importance in a crash.

It’s easy to produce vehicle safety rating labels using the label generator on the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority (EECA) website.
