Tayla and Sunmaras legacy Summit Road Christchurch needs to be made safe

The summit road in Christchurch’s port hills has been the subject of many serious and fatal accidents in recent times. On the 27th of November 2019 Tayla Alexander died when the car she was passenger in rolled off the cliff 2 weeks later her sister passed away from her injuries. I propose change is needed to make this road safer with more sturdy barriers and also deterrence for young who use this road to race I propose the road be controlled during weekend evenings by a closed barrier system to prevent needless racing or speeding around these hills causing injury and death I hope every person that reads this can understand why change is needed. It’s is believed that this road is frequented each weekend by many young teens car enthusiasts and used to show off their cars those left behind by a moments distraction speed or just inexperience leaves a life time of grief and pain. I also want change to the rules and guidelines around our young getting their licences compulsory defensive driving courses to all drivers obtaining licences teaching our young the implications of their naivety and inexperience before more lives are lost more family’s are hurt I ask that the nzta and the New Zealand government address these issues and support and address change
