On December 18, Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) dropped the speed limits along SH6 between Nelson and Blenheim.

Police say the majority of road users were adhering to the new limits, with an educational approach had been taken in monitoring driver behaviour, while motorists have been largely accepting of the changes.
