Trial vehicle scrappage report

The Ministry of Transport (MoT), in conjunction with the Auckland Regional Council (ARC), Auckland Regional Transport Authority (ARTA) and the Broken Car Collection Company (BCCC), ran a trial vehicle-scrappage scheme in Auckland during the period 14 May to 30 June 2007. The project was intended to provide vehicle owners with an incentive to trade in their vehicles that were nearing the end of their useful economic lives. New Zealand has one of the oldest vehicle fleets in the developed world and, as older vehicles are generally more polluting and less safe than newer vehicles, their voluntary removal is considered to be a priority. This is recognised in the New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy which recommended the investigation of a nationwide scrappage scheme. More specifically, the project attempted to assess: 1. how effective the incentive was as an inducement for people to trade in their end-of-life vehicles; 2. what type of vehicles this trial would remove from the vehicle fleet; 3. what impact it would have on air quality; 4. what impact the trial would have on fleet turnover.
