A car crash in central Auckland has left a person seriously injured, on a street that was at the centre of road safety protest just days earlier, Stuff reports. The crash took place just three days after an aggressive protest halted the implementation of a speed bump in the same area. The mound was designed to slow traffic down outside Grey Lynn School – one of many targeted by Auckland Transport as part of its Safe School Speeds project. In May this year, Auckland Transport carried out a speed count across the course of a week on Surrey Crescent and found 350 vehicles to be travelling faster than 60km.
