70 years of achievement
Trafinz has a 70-year record of achievement. One of New Zealand’s older local authority based organisations, it began life as the New Zealand Traffic Institute, to represent those councils with their own departments for the enforcement of both traffic and parking regulations.
As the responsibilities of local authorities have changed, so the organisation’s focus changed from general traffic enforcement, to a wider interest in pursuing all aspects of road safety. In more recent years this focus had broadened to also encompass traffic management in general, roading reform, effective community involvement, environmental issues, parking and transport planning.
Today Trafinz works under an agreed protocol with Local Government New Zealand with a clear brief to make a significant difference in terms of government policy and regulation.
