Crackdown on car owner details

Issues about access to motor registration details have been in the news in South Australia and New Zealand.

In South Australia the Government has announced that it will limit access following a Supreme Court decision that forced Transport SA to provide details of the owners of vehicles parked in a parkiing station that incurred charges for overstaying.

In New Zealand, the motor vehicle registry is a public register with no limitation on the right of access - the Government has announced plans for change following public concern about use of the information for marketing and other purposes.

Things are already tougher on access to the register in most Australian states - see this earlier blog.
