Police have arrested eight people and impounded seven vehicles after they were involved in serious driving offences - all related to a large gang funeral in Auckland last month.
Eight people are facing court action and seven vehicles have been impounded following dozens of complaints of reckless driving at the procession.
The funeral involved "more than 100 motorcycles and 150 vehicles across the North Shore on 7h November 2020," a police spokesperson said.
The complaints included vehicles being driven on the wrong side of the road, intersections blocked, passengers sitting outside vehicle windows, dangerous overtaking, motorcyclists not wearing helmets and a close proximity to pedestrians.
Sixteen vehicles have been identified as being involved in serious driving offences. Police have located an impounded seven of these vehicles.
Waitemata Easting Acting Area Commander Inspector Simon Walker says police will continue investigations to locate the other vehicles involved.
"Many of the drivers in this procession presented a very real risk not only to their own safety and their passengers, but also to other road users and our wider community.
"This type of behaviour on our roads will not be tolerated by police and our community."
