Speed camera detector

Speed Cameras detectors and Radar detectors are found throughout New Zealand. The police make extensive use of unmarked patrol cars, and speed cameras operate on both motorways and open country roads - usually from vans or cars that will be parked on the left hand side of the road as pictured here. Permanent fixed mounted speed cameras are also located through out New Zealand.

See our link for Speed Camera Locations.

New Zealand law requires rental car and motor home hire companies to deduct the police fine (which can be as much as $850) from your credit card. New Zealand hire car companies will also charge you a processing fee.

See our New Zealand hire car insurance "exclusions" page.

The speed camera programme was first introduced by the New Zealand Police in 1993. The purpose of the speed camera programme is to reduce vehicle crashes on high accident areas. Overseas travellers are often photographed on New Zealand roads coming from a open country highway into a small town or village were the speed drops from the 100km open road speed to either 70 or 50km per hour.
