J Atk started this petition to Gisborne city council

GDC is wanting to change the speed limits around Gisborne from 100kph to 80. And from 50 to 30 around town. 

While in NZ we pay 70% of fuel costs as tax, road user charges (rucs, for deisels), we pay for regos and must have cars up to a stringent warrent of fitness standard. 

While our roads around the coast are not kept up to a safe standard, due to negligence of the council so i am left to wonder why in 2020 when motor vehicles have safety features from seatbelts to ABS systems and everything in between (while when the speed limits were created a simple seatbelt was not a requirement to drive at 100kph) we are now having to slow down?

Maybe the council could perhaps encourage more driver training, perhaps look after our roads better and allow people to have safety in their own minds rather then feel the need to continually set new and rediculous guidelines we all must adhere too to suit the needs of a few people who sit in offices all day.

We are a beautiful town and we do not need to be going any slower, if youd like some positive ideas on how to help the community i have plenty.

Gisborne, the community with no unity.
