'Stop' Bump vs speed hump

Sara from Island Bay

Hi neighbours and beyond

I'm all for speed humps and pedestrian crossings especially near schools.
Buttt... I'm really struggling with the new combined crossing/bump on Britomart Street by Berhampore school. It is so harsh that I'm nearly at a stand still to get over it and even … View more
Hi neighbours and beyond

I'm all for speed humps and pedestrian crossings especially near schools.
Buttt... I'm really struggling with the new combined crossing/bump on Britomart Street by Berhampore school. It is so harsh that I'm nearly at a stand still to get over it and even then it's still harsh on my car. I've nearly stalled and get weird looks from kids doing the patrol as they wave me through.
Does anyone else have similar thoughts about it?
I would like to propose to the council that they smooth the harsh edges but they will laugh at me if I'm the only one.
Looking forward to your thoughts

Spin Poi is inspired by traditional poi, but has been adapted to be a safe and effective exercise for seniors and the whole family. Spin Poi can be done sitting, standing or moving. So all ages and levels of ability are welcome. It's an excellent workout for the body and the brain as well as being lots of fun.

I am looking forward to going to training school and continuing to socialise to let out some of my big puppy energy. I am estimated to be medium to large once fully grown. I am the girl who is always up for a cuddle and treats, and will generally be the bravest of my siblings. Being a young puppy, I do require a home with someone around for parts of the day. This will help build my confidence around people, ensure I get lunch, and help with general training. If you think I am the pup for you, contact SPCA’s Canine Team for more information."
