About this programme
5/7. Documentary following members of the New Zealand highway patrol as they witness some of the best and worst behaviour on the nation's motorways. The series is centred around the roads of Auckland, the country's largest urban area, and features motoring chaos including major traffic collisions, escaped animals and pedestrians on busy roads. There is also footage of drivers falling asleep at the wheel, overloaded vehicles and suspects caught with illegal substances - plus a host of excuses as the people pulled over try to persuade officers they have not done anything wrong.
