A teenager filmed riding a luge down the Kaimai Ranges has been fined $750.
The video was posted on Tuesday by Tauranga 18-year-old Travis Scott after he had gone down the dangerous stretch of road as a dare.
Police said at the time it was not illegal to ride the small luge-like vehicle on the road but they would be following up with him.
They said they had since interviewed him and he had been fined for operating a vehicle in a manner likely to cause injury, and for driving on the wrong side of no-passing lines.
Senior Sergeant Ian Campion said the ride could easily have ended in tragedy and it was a reminder that all road users needed to act responsibly.
"This incident could so easily have ended in tragedy and we are pleased that no-one was hurt."
