Election Calls 2014

The AA is calling for all political parties to commit to 15 actions to improve New Zealand’s transport system.

What we are calling for

For us to grow and thrive as a nation we need to have a transport system that is safe, effective and affordable.

We can do much more to improve road safety, get maximum use out of our roads, and ensure the costs of motoring are fair. The AA is also calling for actions to improve cycling safety and provide economically sustainable public transport choices.

Driving is the way 80% of New Zealanders get themselves to work and home, take their kids to school, go to the shops, and visit their friends and family. The changes we are calling for will make a real difference in the everyday lives of our 1.4 million Members.
