What do you think of the new circles painted on Dunedin's main drag?

Nicole Reporter from Dunedin News

The sudden appearance of colourful circles along Dunedin's main shopping streets has left some seeing red.

About 450 circles were painted along George and Princes streets from Sunday night as part of a range of temporary measures approved by the Dunedin City Council in response to Covid-19.

The measures include lowering the speed limit from 30kmh to 10kmh, adding free parking, letting shops expand onto footpaths, and installing temporary speed humps and circles to remind road users of shared spaces.
