On Thursday June 23 I saw a vehicle parked by the South Waikato Vets.
I noticed the registration expired July 2010, that would also indicate that the warrant of fitness had expired.
I wasn’t bothered by that, what did bother me was the driver was a police officer.
If he didn’t have his uniform on he would just be another driver and this wouldn’t be getting written.
Bet he’s given out tickets to people with an expired warrant of fitness and registration and will probably continue to do so.
Yet here he is doing the same thing in a vehicle nearly one year out of date and yes I gave the details to the police.
The general public aren’t Reply: Tokoroa Police Senior Sergeant Graeme Hill confirms receiving notification of this matter and that it is being investigated. He said this was embarrassing for police and that his officers strove to be beyond reproach at all times. The suggestion that the general public aren’t allowed excuses was not accepted, as diversion was regularly offered to drivers with otherwise safe vehicles that had expired registrations or warrants of fitness.
