The 0800 CYCLE CRASH (0800 292 532) number gathers data about cycle crashes on our roads. A quick four minute survey is all it takes to gather information about where a crash happened and why so that Council can make cycling safer in the Nelson Tasman region. If we have more information, we can direct resources to make it safer for cyclists.

0800 CYCLE CRASH, a joint project supported by Nelson City Council  and The New Zealand Transport Agency, gathers information to use for:

  • highlighting trends and blackspots
  • guiding future education and enforcement programmes
  • improving design and maintenance of cycle paths and roads

So please . . . if you are involved in, or see, a cycle crash or near miss, phone 0800 CYCLE CRASH (or 0800 292 532) and tell us about it.
