Traffic warning for holiday goers

Police have given a stern warning to motorists to drive safely, but it seems that message isn't getting through to everyone.

People are not wasting time to get out of Auckland for the New Year break, unfortunately for some, they are still a long way from their destination.

Grand Drive to Johnson Hill Tunnel heading north is heavily congested.

There have been no crashes in this area yet and NZTA is hoping it will stay that way through the holiday break.
