From the north of Victoria to the south, from the east to the west, school zone speed limits are standard. Ridiculous times in my opinion, absurd locations at times and absurdly low limits in some places, but that is how it is.
Except, not for the children who attend a school in Balaclava Road, East St Kilda who obviously have very influential parents. While I admire their achievement, I think it is wrong for the State Government to make an exception.
Most of us have to work within the system. Not so for the Balaclava Road school. They changed the system for themselves only. What power!!!
As this link shows, 8.00AM to 9.30AM and 2.30PM to 4PM is standard. This did not suit the Balaclava Road School, Beth Rivkah College I believe. They lobbied hard and had their speed limits changed to 7.00AM to 9.00AM and 2.30PM to 5PM.
Good hey. Don't fit in with society, but change society's rules to suit you. I like the principle, even if I do not like the result.
