Ponsonby Rd now 40kph – iPhone-wielding coffee set rejoices

Ponsonby Rd now 40kph – iPhone-wielding coffee set rejoices

This snuck up on us, and with HQ being located on Richmond Rd, we’re experiencing it regularly. However, much of the time driving on Ponsonby Rd it’s just about getting to the next red light, so whether the speed limit is 40 or 50kph is neither here nor there. The change is, in part, because of a particlarly nasty accident where a woman was hit in the median strip, and also to make Ponsonby Rd safer in general for the coffee set that are perpetually distracted on their iPhones while rushing to their next latte.

40kph is much more palletable to the masses than the 2 other options: make Ponsonby Rd pedestrians only, or ban coffee shops!
