March of the 40 zones

By johnboy 10 June 2013 45

Shane Rattenbury has put forth word that come 11 June there will be a whole heap of 40 around town:

New 40km/h speed limits in Belconnen, Civic and Tuggeranong town centres will come into effect on Tuesday 11 June 2013, announced Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Shane Rattenbury.

“The 40 km/h speed limits will apply 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and aim to improve safety for all road users,” said Mr Rattenbury.

“These are town centre areas with high pedestrian movement and a substantial level of retail and commercial development.

A system to protect pedestrians already exists; they’re called pedestrian crossings at traffic lights. Green means “GO”, Red means “STOP”.

Green actually means ‘proceeed with caution if the way is clear’. Green does not (and never has) meant ‘go’. Perhaps we just need to educate people about traffic lights instead?

Wow, pedantic much? A green light means GO to 99% of us. But thanks for the education. I don’t think I’ll be slowing down at every green light I come across to check out all directions of traffic and ‘proceeding with caution if the way is clear’ though.

Of course green means GO,like the clappers,providing there isn’t a fcuktard running a red light.

Green used to mean go, now it means ‘keep your head down texting while you block traffic’ like one ditz was doing today on Northbourne.

It was on the test I did back in the early 1990’s to get a Learner Drivers License at Dickson Motor Registry.

Yeah I don’t doubt that, but it’s kind of Captain Obvious isn’t it? Keeping a general lookout for “special” drivers is how you should drive on ANY part of the road at ANY time.

Suggesting we need educating on traffic lights if we think green means GO is just nitpicking.

The Mully Incident rears its ugly head as yet another case in point 🙂
