30km/h Speed Limits

October 22nd, 2007 at 10:00pm

Good evening Stuart,

I think this idea of turning residential streets in to 30km/h speed zones is a bit silly. Perhaps there might be some merit in doing that to some of the busier school zones, but I can't see any point in doing it to residential zones.

Mind you, some car parks have some very odd speed limits…I saw one today that had an 8km/h limit. How do they expect anyone to measure 8km/h accurately on a car speedometer? Surely 5 or 10 km/h would be more logical.

Regards,

    Ouch. I find some 50km/h streets too slow; I would hate to see them at 30.

    While we’re on the topic, ACT school zones should be like the NSW ones where they go back to the normal speed during the day.

    And some 80km/h roads should be 90… IMO.

    A 30 km/h speed limit is just not practical. It could cause more accidents than having a 50 km/h limit.
