Speed bumps in Island Bay – here they go again?Posted: August 31, 2016

So three of the speed bumps along The Parade in Island Bay are to be removed despite their usefulness in slowing down vehicles toward the speed limit of 30 k/hr (18/08). Seems like another over reaction in Island Bay to limits on the use of motor vehicles. Already, famously, Island Bay has erupted in response to some limits on parking and access over a mere cycleway. Now the speed bumps.
If Island Bay could reflect for a moment, perhaps they would consider a speed control measure of a row of trees along The Parade to narrow the road. Drivers could relax into a slower routine and pedestrians, drivers and property would all be safer. I suggest that could help calm things down in Island Bay a little.
