I am petitioning to bring attention to the issue of road safety at the existing Zebra Crossing on Beach Road (near the intersection of Park Rise and Huntly Road) Campbell’s bay to Auckland Transport. 

The petition is to upgrade the existing crossing to a raised crossing as a speed calming measure. 

The current crossing is used by many Primary, Intermediate and High School students as well as the local community, and is located next to Bus Stops and a new Daycare centre. It’s also located on the flat stretch at the bottom of a steep hill, where cars speed with disregard for younger children. 

Recent investigations from www.at.govt.nz show that 20% of pedestrian crashes occur at existing crossings. Raising the crossing has been proven as an effective means of slowing vehicles to 30 km/hr, and slow speeds are essential to ensure pedestrian safety. I use the crossing daily and the number of near misses is unacceptable.

Thank you for signing
