Fluid leaking from a vehicle involved in a three-car crash north of Bulls has closed State Highway 3.

There were no serious injuries in the crash which happened about 1km north of the Rangitikei town about 3.30pm.

One person had been taken to Palmerston North Hospital as a precaution, police central communications sergeant Peter Theobald said.

Diversions were in place for both northbound and southbound traffic using Pukepapa Rd. Commuters were urged to remain patient, he said.

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.
