Motorway Patrol

Promotional Trailer

Get ready!   Ratings winner Motorway Patrol is back!  Join us for Series 16……

As always, we’re right there alongside Motorway Patrol officers as they deal with the crashed, the trashed and the smashed, the confused, amused and boozed – and everything else in between.

This series we answer pressing questions like ‘Is there ever a good time to tell an officer you’re going to punch them in the face?’  ‘Is it ever a good idea to drive 100km toward a bridge, carrying a load that’s too big to fit underneath?’  and ‘What happens when you go for a stroll along the live lanes of the motorway?’

We show you a plethora of examples of what happens when you drive drunk, from the lucky escapes to the big mistakes and why it’s never a good idea to try and make a run for it from the police.

Auckland’s motorway cameras pick up the big hits, flips and dangerous maneuvers as they happen and track the drivers responsible.  These cameras ensure a bird’s eye view of every incident as it unfolds.

Buckle in for the ride and join the New Zealand Police Motorway Patrol Unit as they deal with all the above and much, much more.
