Locations & details of traffic incidents

The Police (and/or the NZTA or Ministry of Transport) have detailed statistics on roading incidents in the country. It would be excellent if New Zealand could have a similar map to this one for British Colombia: Please make the locations, type of incident (e.g. drink driving, etc) and speed of the vehicle for traffic offences available. These details would be sufficient to produce detailed maps & further analysis without compromising individuals' privacy.

People lacking an understanding of the spatial patterns of driving offences. All the public hears via the media are generic statements about risk.

Being able to make that more specific will lead to more fine-grained understanding of the risk. This could aid compliance and produce greater confidence.

Facilitating more information being disseminated to the public in a manner which they can understand.
