There was a large screech of tyres and a lil bang. If all the safety measures could be removed from Munro road to Quarry road this would be really appreciated as the peace and quiet when an accident has happened is a joy to behold as I sit and have a quiet beer at home. Alternativly if the speed limit to avoid the weekly crashes in this part of the road could see a 30km limit imposed between 6am to 9am and 4pm to 7pm daily. The noise of crashes sirens and yelling etc is affecting my health. Thanks idiot drivers
