#30I am a local resident near the school and the total disregard for any road rules is making a very dangerous situation for students leaving the school and trying to cross roads.

#41I see how busy and potentially unsafe this gets for our school kids.
ANNE Lindsay (Auckland , 2022-08-05)
#44Reducing carbon emissions and road safety around schools are connected issues. Parents need to feel confident in their children getting to school on foot /by bike/scooter safely

#54The speed at which cars can travel on Allum St is an unacceptable risk on a street with both a school and a destination playground.
Danica Holgado (Auckland, 2022-08-07)
#55This is important

#56I care about the safety of the student and adult community of St Thomas’s school.
Karen Deynzer (Auckland , 2022-08-07)
#57I'm deeply concerned for the safety of our tamariki. In the last couple of years I have seen a few students been hit by cars and a number of near misses. Not only should U turns be illegal outside schools, there needs to be an opportunity (arrow) for right turning traffic from kohi Rd into John Rymer place. The patrol crossing also should be made a raised pedestrian (zebra) crossing.
Josie Tait (Auckland , 2022-08-07)
#60The road needs improvement. Slower speed signs, and speed bumps or something of that kind to make people mindful of the children.
Joshua Taylor (Auckland, 2022-08-07)
#62I'm signing because I advocate to investigate the roading improvements roading on Allum Street to better safeguard our students and wider community.

#63It’s important our children are safe
Alaina Collins (Auckland, 2022-08-08)
#65My children go to the school and college down the road.
The drivers of cars and trucks on Kohimarama Rd have a total disregard for any road rules - why are trucks even allowed on Kohimarama Road?
I have informed drivers to slow down a number of times and today I saw a lady drive through a red light!
Whilst other schools have a 40 speed signage and raised crossing, there are no reduce speed signs, raised crossing or students crossing signage.
It is a very dangerous environment for the students heading into and leaving the school. How would you feel if it was your child who got injured or died due to a car driving over 40 in a school area.
Kav Morton (Auckland, 2022-08-09)
#68I am concerned about the safety of our students at St Thomas's School. The traffic is a nightmare.
Karen Brothers (Auckland, 2022-08-09)
#70The risk to our students during drop-off and pick-up has become more evident as less students walk to school.
Connie McAdam (Auckland, 2022-08-09)
#77The road is extremely busy and potentially dangerous for students/parents in the morning and afternoon school rush.
Lesa Somaratne (Auckland, 2022-08-10)
#81I live on Allum St and my kids go to St Thomas's and I see the traffic chaos around this school and feel that it is incredibly unsafe. I think speed bumps on Allum St would be great to slow down those drivers who speed along this area
Sarah Jackson (Kohimarama, 2022-08-11)
#82Safety in this community matters to me!
Jonathan Drucker (Kohimarama, 2022-08-12)
#85Signing because it’s a disgrace that St Thomas are having to do this in the first instance. AT pull your socks up.
Chris Ingram (Auckland , 2022-08-12)
#92I’m signing because my children attend this school and it can seem dangerous in the AM.
Dan Mcbeth (Auckland , 2022-08-19)
#97I want safer roads for our children around St Thomas’s School!
Mary Tyler (Auckland , 2022-08-19)
#98The exit to rear of shops onto Allum has low visibility and there are other areas which pose danger for students near vehicle entrances and exits to carpark
Jeannie Preddey (Auckland, 2022-08-19)
#101I’m signing because I have seen first hand the risks to children and whanau at St Thomas school. It prevents younger children having the benefit of freedom to use active modes to get to school as their safety is too much at risk
Rebecca Hollett (Auckland, 2022-08-19)
#102My kids are at St Thomas and I am very concerned about their safety on the roads around the school. Driver behaviour is terrible and I feel like unfortunately it’s only a matter of time before there is a serious incident around the school
Leigh Van den Hoofdakker (Auckland, 2022-08-19)
#104Both of my boys attend St Thomas primary school and they regularly walk from their mothers on St Heliers Bay rd. It I s a busy intersection and I believe can be quite dangerous
James Hawke (Te Atatu South , 2022-08-19)
#111I agree there needs to be significant improvement around the school area.
Rebecca Malkamäki (Auckland , 2022-08-19)
#113Given the young age of the school children, heavy congestion during school pickup and drop offs and the busy intersection with Kohi Road - this is a high risk area for serious danger to small children.
Annika Lim (Auckland, 2022-08-20)
#114Please improve road safety on Allum street for school traffic.
Colm Caffrey (Auckland, 2022-08-20)
#116I support this petition to keep our tamariki safe.
Vanitha S (Saint John, 2022-08-20)
#119I live locally and I concerned about the safety of the children who attend at Thomas school and the road users.
Shayna Burrett (Auckland , 2022-08-21)
#120It is unsafe for the kids , some of whom just cross the road then at 3pm seems be a backlog of people congregating at the traffic lights.
Liz Burrett (Auckland, 2022-08-21)
#121Allum St is dangerous during pick up and drop offs.
Zanna Gillespie (Auckland, 2022-08-21)
#122We need to do everything we can to keep these little ones safe.
Sandra McGowan (Auckland, 2022-08-21)
#127I am concerned with the increasing traffic in Allum Street and construction work at the new Ryman Healthcare building site that children at St Thomas School are at risk of a serious incident occurring.
