Stop Vicroads Reducing the Speed Limit on Remembrance Drive from 100km/h to 80km/h
This petition had 563 supporters
The people of Ballarat don't support the reduction of the speed limit on Remembrance Drive from 100KM/H to 80KM/H.
The Daniel Andrew's state government and their associated authorities, including VicRoads, continue to make decisions relating to our city, without adequate consultation with our community.
In relation to this particular decision, VicRoads are now "consulting" with residents, however, it comes across very much as a "tick the box" exercise and seems unlikely they'll take into account that a majority of the community aren't supportive of the speed limit reduction.
A Cardigan Village resident recently wrote this:
"This issue regarding the reduction of the speed limit on Remembrance Drive has been a discussion point at the Cardigan Village Community forum in the past and is also discussed by many locals whenever they meet. I know that the recent deaths on the same stretch of road are nothing short of tragic as I came upon both of them returning home from Ballarat, but reducing the speed limit on a country road is not going to solve the problem. If the speed limit was to be reduced on a country road every time there was a road death, the Western Highway in particular to Geelong would be 40kms.
Reducing the speed limit will only cause frustration and I believe will result in more accidents. Hitting a tree at 80KPH instead of 100KPH will make no difference, it is driver education that is needed".
