Marton police are looking for a driver whose vehicle appears to have been involved in a crash, but left only flattened grass and debris behind at the scene.

Senior Constable Richard Gower said the crash site, about 2 kilometres up Santoft Rd, Marton, was reported by a Fonterra tanker driver early on September 16 after he came across broken glass and rubbish on the road, but no vehicle.

It was clear a vehicle had crossed the centre-line, and gone up a bank while taking a left-hand corner before rolling back down on to the road.

It either landed back on its tyres or was towed from the scene, but it was unclear when the accident happened, Mr Gower said.

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call Marton police on 06 327 6555.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
