I’M sure that I'm not the only Orange resident who believes that it's time for a 40km/h speed limit in our Central Business District.

In my opinion, such a decision is long overdue, for obvious safety reasons that relate to all drivers, bike riders and pedestrians.

Speaking of pedestrians, from my daily visits to our CBD, it seems that crossing at traffic light pedestrian crossings when the red light is showing has almost become the norm.

This is done by people of all ages, and certainly sets the wrong example to children.

There's an obvious solution to this on-going concern, but I bet pounds to peanuts that it's most unlikely to happen.
