Road crash locations shifted

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 28 October 2020

The location of some road crashes has been shifted hundreds of metres away from where they actually happened.

Waka Kotahi - the NZ Transport Agency says these are unintentional mistakes.

But a road crash investigation reports that the agency changed police records, and says mislocating crashes makes it harder to identify accident blackspots.
