Call for suburban speed cuts




For students from grade 6 - 8.

  1. Why do the RACT and Council want to reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h?
  2. If you wanted to know who supported the change in speed limit who would you ask and what would you ask? Devise a survey that you could use to find out who in your local school supported the change and why. Carry out the survey.
  3. Present the data 3 different ways that can be easily understood e.g. graph, table, as percentages or any other way you can think of.
