NZTA says privacy breach caused by human error

The New Zealand Transport Agency has sent an Auckland man details of several other people, in another privacy breach by a government agency.

The man, who does not want to be named, says he got a $40 infringement notice for not paying a toll on the Northern Gateway road.

He says along with his notice, there were three infringement notices for other people, each showing full names and addresses and one with a personal driver's licence number.

The agency says it regrets the incident, which it says was caused by human error.

It says it has cancelled all the infringement notices and has tried to contact those involved. It says it will also write letters of apology.
