Safety request to have raised speed humps or more speed humps : We regularly have cars speeding down the street in excess of 50kph. They fly over road humps and do not adhere to the 20kph sign. Resident parked cars have been hit as people are inpatient which the Police have attended. Pedestrians have nearly been hit as people are rushing. Several animals have been hit and as a result have died. The noise is very excessive and people race down St James avenue , Papanui , Christchurch to miss the traffic and lights on papanui road. After talking to the several neighbours they are sick of the excessive speed. People treat this street as a race track which spoils the tranquility and the character with it being a memorial street. Plus ultimately a safety risk for the residents of the street who are a mixture of elderly, professional couples and families. Please let me know if we need to start a petition to have raised speed humps or more to be put in the street. We want to save lives.
