Police checkpoints at Easter 2020

Easter should be unusually quiet at the beach this year.

Just in case there are folks thinking of travelling from further south to Waikawa Beach for Easter:

Police have set up a checkpoint north of Wellington to catch people sneaking away for the long Easter weekend.

Vehicles are being diverted off State Highway 1 – north of Plimmerton – through a truck weigh station to be checked.

Police are looking for signs people are heading away for a holiday and cross-referencing registrations and licences to check drivers lived locally. …

“The message is clear stay home and save lives, now is not the time for non-essential travel,” they said.…

The government and Ministry of Health have sent a clear message – this weekend needs to be a staycation.
