In response to your Tuesday edition front page story regarding Pukekawa school speed limit being reduced, I have lived in Pukekawa for 27 years and had two children attending school there.
In all this time I have never heard of or seen any accidents involving cars or children. This stretch of road has good visibility and most drivers are watchful around the school.
Even if the limit goes to 40km there is always going to be the odd person who will disregard the speed limit, don’t tar us all with the same brush! It is similar to Harrisville school which is also 70km at present. Buckland school is in town so is not at all the same. I hope this does not happen. Name supplied
