As Tauranga's population continues to balloon, residents in Pyes Pa are bearing the brunt of increased busyness with more cars and pedestrians creating concerns for safety. As increased traffic accesses more roads, driveways and shops, those living in the area are calling for drivers to slow down. Reporter Kiri Gillespie visits Pyes Pa to ask locals why they are so concerned and what are they doing about it.
Hundreds of people have signed a petition calling for slower speed limits in a busy part of Pyes Pa.
The petition will be presented to Tauranga City Council tomorrow by Pyes Pa
