Taking a break...

FixMyStreet is going offline shortly, probably permanently. The software is old and needs a complete rewrite, the site is being bombarded by spammers, and it is debatable whether councils are receiving and/or acting on FixMyStreet reports.

As of now, it is not possible to post new issues, or updates to published issues.

If you have submitted on FixMyStreet, thank you for playing a part in one of Aotearoa/New Zealand's early civic tech projects.

The pedestrian crossing at High Street, Waipawa (near New World Supermarket) is marked by reflective discs.The road is nearly always busy at all times (it is part of State Highway 2)and motorists passing through frequently ignore pedestrians using the crossing. I was recently using the crossing (coming from the car park to the shops)at about 8.00 pm and a south-bound vehicle stopped to let me cross but although I was already on the crossing a north-bound vehicle travelling at about 50 kph continued travelling and appeared totally oblivious to my presence. I consider that pedestrian controlled traffic lights (or at least flashing belisha beacons) need to be installed on this crossing before there is a serious accident involving a pedestrian.
