Reduce Napier Hill speed limit to 30km/h

This petition had 38 supporters

This petition is for Napier City Council to reduce the vehicle speed limit to 30km per hour on Napier Hill. The current 50km speed limit is dangerous due to the narrow and winding roads, often obstructed by parked cars. Many roads do not have footpaths for pedestrians and cars going at the current speed limit do not have time to react to all the potential hazards. It is primarily a residential area with schools so safety should be the priority. There are some signs suggesting lower speeds around tight corners or warn of concealed exits but these appear to be inconsistently placed and on an ad hoc basis. A blanket reduction in speed for the entire hill seems the best way to prevent accidents. Please sign this petition if you agree with this proposal.
