Petition summary: To reduce the speed limit to 50km/h for the Tamarau/ Wainui area, beginning at Coldstream Road and ending at the Wainui turn off into Oneroa Road. Also a 50km/h speed zone for Okitu and a 70km/h speed zone for Makorori Beach/ Tatapouri beginning at Makorori headland.

We have seen too many deaths, accidents and close calls on SH35. The traffic will only increase over the next few years. If we slow down the traffic we can give everybody more time to react to dangerous situations. Stopping distances will be shorter, impact forces will be reduced. To make our community a safer place we need your support.

We the undersigned are concerned citizens who urge the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and Tairawhiti Roads to act now to reduce the speed limit in the aforementioned areas.
