This petition had 282 supporters

Most schools in Victoria have 40km signs on road surrounding the school area, Not Bass Valley Primary School! we are 80km during regular time and 60km during drop off and pick up time. There is no off street parking available to parents and only minimal angled parking available, creating a busy and down right dangerous recipe for disaster. Vicroads was asked to review this (on 15/6/17) as a number of parents felt this was not ok. after a review a case worker decided that it was not in their best interests to change the speed limit. There was no legitimate reason given, only that rural schools are normally 80km/60km zones rather than the suburban 50km/40km. This is not good enough, Why are Rural children's lives less important that suburban? The risk of a child being hit at 40km opposed to 60km could mean the difference between injury and death. So this petition has been started to raise awareness to the fact that our children lives are just as important as any other and that Vicroads should definitely be interested in the welfare and safety of Bass Valley Primary School Students, as well as the rest of the children in Victoria.
