Land Transport Rule
Tyres and Wheels Amendment (No 2) 2007
Note: This Rule should be read in conjunction with the consolidated version of Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels 2001, which includes previous Rule amendments.
Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels Amendment (No 2) 2007 amends Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels 2001 (the Rule), which specifies vehicle standards and other requirements for tyres and wheels, and their assembly with hubs and axles, on all motor vehicles and pedal cycles operating on New Zealand roads.
The objective of this amendment Rule is to extend, to agricultural tractors, the exception that allows individual tyres of multiple tyre sets to be fitted to groundspreaders and dedicated groundsprayers. The amendment Rule also inserts a corresponding definition of ‘agricultural’ into the Rule.
For the purposes of consultation, amendments proposed to Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels 2001 and nine other Land Transport Rules were combined into a single draft Rule, Land Transport Rule: Omnibus Amendment 2007 (the Omnibus Amendment Rule).
On 3 August 2007, Land Transport New Zealand sent details of the proposed amendments by letter or email to about 2500 groups and individuals who had registered an interest in the Rules to be amended, seeking submissions. The draft Omnibus Amendment Rule was made available through the Land Transport NZ Help Desk and, together with Questions and Answers, was also available on the Land Transport NZ website. The availability of the draft for comment was publicised in the metropolitan daily newspapers in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin and in the New Zealand Gazette. Land Transport NZ received 35 submissions on the draft Omnibus Amendment Rule, of which seven commented on the proposed amendments in this Rule.
Following consultation, the provisions in the draft Omnibus Amendment Rule were split into 10 separate amendment Rules, including this Rule. The submissions that were received were taken into account in drafting this amendment Rule before it was submitted to the Minister for Transport Safety for signing.
1.1(1) This Rule is Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels Amendment (No 2) 2007.
1.1(2) This Rule amends Land Transport Rule: Tyres and Wheels 2001.
This Rule comes into force on 17 January 2008.
Subclause 2.3(2) is amended by substituting “on groundspreaders, dedicated groundsprayers or agricultural tractors” for “on groundspreaders or dedicated groundsprayers”.
Part 2 is amended by inserting the following definition in the appropriate place:
- means connected directly with the operation or management of a farm.”
