Aucklanders are not happy with the news more than 1600 roads are having their speed limits lowered, Newshub reports, with some suggesting it is “madness”. Last week, Auckland Transport (AT) announced 19% of the city’s roads will have their speed limits reduced to increase safety and lower harm. The most extreme cuts will see speed limits dropped from 50km/h to 10km/h, and 100km/h to 40km/h. But National’s Transport spokesperson Simeon Brown says it will make congestion worse than it already is for New Zealand’s biggest city. “Speed is just one factor when it comes to traffic accidents,” Brown said.
