They are: Compulsory Third Party Insurance Health and Fitness Speed Tolerance Reduction The closing date for comments is the 29th February. Please send any comments to the CAN policy co-ordinator, Graeme Lindup (email: policy@can.org.nz). In March the policies will go through a final review process in the light of any comments received and once adopted by the CAN exec, will be posted up on the CAN website as CAN policy.
