About us

The New Zealand Local Authority Traffic Institute or TRAFINZ represents local authority views on road safety and traffic management in New Zealand. It exists to lobby the government, to influence decision making on road safety and traffic issues. It also acts as a forum for collectively pursuing traffic issues of interest to local authorities, and for sharing information and advice.

TRAFINZ serves the public interest by advocating for safe, efficient and economical planning and management of traffic. Member local authorities represent more than two-thirds of New Zealand's population.

The organisation is run by a voluntary executive comprising 15 councillors and officers elected at an annual conference. It also has a technical committee of staff practitioners from various member councils, plus the New Zealand Police, who carry out or coordinate the detailed work set by the executive through an annual business plan.
