Christchurch City Council bans cruising:
Drive down a street more than once within 60 minutes with your friends from a car club which accidently causes traffic jams and that would be "Cruising" which would be illegal.
Here is another news article about it:
Here is the actual law that allows the Christchurch City Council to do this:
People have the right to freedom of movement as stated in I think the bill of rights, so by banning 'cruising' you are restricting freedom of movement on a public street. If people want to drive around with their friends in a convoy and obey all the road rules, they should be able to do this, even though a large convoy could accidently cause traffic jams. There are already other existing laws to stop people deliberately impeding the flow of traffic so there is no need for a 'cruising' bylaw which restricts freedom of movement.
What can we do to try and remove this cruising ban?, Well the Minister does have the power to remove that part of the law as stated here:
So everyone, would you please write to Transport Minister Steven Joyce and tell him to remove the 'cruising' part of the law:
Anyone got any other ideas on how to get the law removed? Would someone get a judicial review of the 'cruising' part of the law done? Human rights commission?
