Data dump: no need for speed

Over the course of the last two decades, the average speed travelled by New Zealand motorists has decreased year on year. And while the mean speed has dropped more gradually from 123 km/h in 1996 to 95.7 km/h, the speeds among the 85 percentile—the 15 percent of vehicles recorded travelling faster than the mean speed—dropped markedly from 115 km/h to 102 km/h.
