- Minister for Main Roads & Local Government- Warren Pitt & Associates
Our brother was killed on Noosa / Cooroy road recently due to traffic stopped to turn into a dangerous drive way on this road. It is 100 km an hour with no over taking lanes and you just don't have the time to prepare yourself for what may be around the corner.
Myself and my family are taking on the Minister for Roads to reduce the speed limit on this horror stretch or to widen the road so that other cars doing the 100 km speed limit have somewhere to go other than up the back of the car infront.
Many similar accidents just like this one have happened along this horror stretch and it is honestly one of the most dangerous roads that many know of on the Sunshine Coast.
This has not been the only incident of its kind recently. Since losing Jayden, there have been at least 3 other similar situations and I am sure that there will be plenty more unless something is done about this. The police and residence of this area have also been fighting to have something done.
If these roads were in the middle of suburbia, the speed limit would be nowhere near this high. But for some reason, just because the only thing on either side of the road is grass, this somehow makes it safe to hit triple digits on the speedometer?
If you are here to sign this petition and you find that it wont let you because your details are already listed, this is because you have already signed our petition when we were walking the streets asking for signatures and we have transferred your name onto this online one. I hope this is ok. We have not entered any street names or such, just first & last names and suburb.
If this is not entirely possible, we request a further review of the speed limit and road improvement, so that other lives can be saved and their families do not have to go through the pain and suffering of losing a child, a parent or simply just a friend along the Horror Stretch that this road is.
The speed limit on this road is 100 km/h which is unnecessary. This is an extremely narrow road with residential driveways every 50 meters or so. When cars are turning into their drive ways, the cars behind them (whom would be traveling at the 100 km/h current speed limit) have absolutely nowhere to go other than straight into the back of them.
