Re traffic calming measures, Central Leader, July 16.
Citizens beware . . . traffic calming? Give me a break. I live in Mt Roskill and have recently had speed bumps installed in my street.
In fact, one speed bump is right outside my house and it drives me nuts.
Every vehicle that slows to cross it creates noise by revving their engine and speeding off.
The worst are the vehicles towing trailers that clang and clatter their way over the speed bump.
I was initially in favour of these measures but now wish they were not there. I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in the past five months.
As for ‘‘calming traffic’’ – I think it just irritates drivers to the point that they rev their engine between speed bumps to get back up to speed or travel over it so fast the
