RIDNZ specialises in human factor road safety research and criminal behaviour

Impaired driving relates to a multitude of behaviours that have negative effects for road safety in New Zealand. RIDNZ identifies with the maxim ‘we drive as we live’. Our research seeks to not only improve the safety on New Zealands roads but also to effect positive change for all. We believe that innovation, technology and compassion are key to these endeavours.

Specialist areas of expertise

Alcohol and Drug Driving: Trends, numbers and data on traffic offences and offending. Police records and Ministry of Justice records. Technological and behavioural research.

Offending: Trends, numbers and data on traffic offences and offending. Police records and Ministry of Justice records.

Rehablitation and Therapeutic Justice: Current approaches in rehabilitation and cognitive behavioural research.

Latest News:

Interlocks

Legislation will soon be in place making New Zealands Alcohol Ignition Interlock programme the mandatory sentence for repeat and high level drink drivers.

Rehabilitation

The Ministry Of Health will soon be conducting impact/outcome evaluations of the drink driver rehabilitation programmes they have been funding.

Alcohol and Drug Courts

The New Zealand Pilot Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Courts have had their evaluation period extended by a further five years. This is to ensure enough participants have taken part in the initiative before it can be effectively evaluated.
