Kiwi sensation Jordan Watson gave a quick class on TVNZ's Breakfast this morning after being landed with a workmate's daughter.
Auckland Transport (AT) is looking at lowering speeds in the city centre, in a move they say will "improve road safety for the large number of people walking, cycling and living in the area."
They have proposed a 30km/h zone around the CBD which will be consulted on as part of a speed bylaw review in November.
AT says the move is part of its work to improve road safety in Auckland, where one person dies and two are seriously injured on the roads each week.
AT's Group Manager Network Management and Safety, Randhir Karma, says many of the crashes in the city centre involve vulnerable road users.
"Eighty-four per cent of all crashes involve vulnerable road users. Nearly half of the crashes involve people walking and this is not acceptable.
"If a person walking is hit by a vehicle travelling at 30km, the chance of dying is 10 per cent. At 50km, the chance of dying is 80 per cent," he says.
AT say they're currently determining the exact locations for the start of the lower speed limit and what physical changes would need to be implemented.
