McLeod Road is one of the busiest in Te Atatu South and there are so many speeding cars all day and night. We live towards the soccer club end of McLeod and with all the apartments at the end of the road the speed and volume of traffic is the biggest concern. I often have to help school children cross the road before and after school as there are too many cars for them to cross the road safely and cars are going far to fast. Many times I have seen some very close calls with cars speeding and school children crossing. Boy racers have races up and down the street which further puts the public at risk. It's not just a couple of people speeding its the majority. Most of the other neighbouring streets have speed bumps or islands that narrow the road - why can this not be done down McLeod Road? This will surely help the cars slow down. Please do something about this to help reduce the speed of cars before there are serious accidents.
