Motorway Patrol screens on TV2 with series 16 in post production.
Featuring all the terrible decision-makers, careless drivers, crashes, close calls and gas-fueled gymnastics the series is renowned for.
This series features a bumper crop of some of the most ‘what-were-they-thinking?’ moments captured so far.
See how far one mans adrenalin will take him after a spectacular motorbike crash, find out just how many rugby players can fit in a single vehicle and what happens when an illegal street racer tries to take off from a police checkpoint.
As always, we’re right there with the officers on the ground as they come face to face with drunk drivers, flipped cars, pedestrians on the motorway, drivers making a run for it and the many characters in between.
Auckland’s ‘JTOC’ motorway cameras pick up the big hits, flips and dangerous maneuvers as they happen, and track the drivers responsible. These cameras ensure a birds-eye view of every incident as it unfolds.
Tune in to catch all the mayhem the officers of the New Zealand Police Motorway Patrol Unit deal with on a daily basis.
