Despite the South Island seeing rain and high winds over the weekend it didn’t impact on the national road toll.
The Queen’s Birthday road toll period has ended with no deaths on New Zealand roads.
It was a dramatic improvement on Queen’s Birthday last year when there were four fatal crashes resulting in seven deaths, Ministry of Transport figures show.
Police central communications confirmed that this weekend’s road toll was zero.
The road toll period began at 4pm on Friday and ran till 6am today.
It is understood the last long weekend with a zero road toll was Easter two years ago.
