Standing at the front of my daughter’s daycare (admittedly in Queanbeyan but I have been told it’s the same in Canberra) I watch as at least 3 out of 5 drivers speed past the centre.
Some of them are travelling at more than 50km/hr which is the standard zone in a residential area.
I am puzzled that school zones are in place to protect our kids but not in place to protect our youngest generations.
Apparently if a childcare is connected to a school then the zones apply…does that mean it’s a too bad so sad situation if my daughter gets hit by an idiot outside her daycare?
At that age she doesn’t know road safety, she doesn’t know how to cross a road. And before you start I carry her in and out of the centre so she’s in no way able to run away from me…my point is, it only takes on person speeding down the road in the wet.
