Motorway Patrol

Get ready and buckle in for the ride as we join the New Zealand Police Motorway Patrol officers deal with the crashed, the trashed, the confused, amused and boozed – and everything else in between.

Motorway Patrol has spent 20 years as a firm Kiwi favourite, and it’s hitting the tarmac for another round of motorway mayhem. TVNZ 2 is bringing you a new season with the familiar faces of the motorway police who’ve seen every kind of crazy, and the newer officers who are just discovering what drivers are capable of.

Buckle in for the ride as we join Auckland’s traffic police as they deal with the crashed, the trashed, the confused, amused and boozed – revealing all of what really happens on our motorways.

Plus, this year, TVNZ are celebrating Motorway Patrol’s 20-year anniversary with a big birthday special.

We’ve dug into the archives and come up with some of the greatest stories in the show’s history – from crashes and smashes, brawls and drunks, to the many laugh-out-loud moments that have made Motorway Patrol a national institution.

As well as highlights from the past 20 years, the special shows how road policing has changed over the years, from the methods of breath-testing and the amount of alcohol allowed in your system, to the introduction of photo drivers’ licences. Come along for the ride!
