TO: The Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that:
- the imposition of additional 40kph speed limit zones in Civic has produced extremely perverse outcomes for Canberrans;
- thousands of individuals have been penalised for failing to comply with extremely confusing signage regimes in the new speed limit areas;
- the so-called grace period combined with lack of effective warning and signage and a massive number of fines demonstrate a callous government failure.

Your petitioners therefore request the Assembly to call on the ACT Government to:
- waive the fines and penalties incurred in the month July 2021 in the new 40kph speed limited zones in Civic; and
- take action to make it absolutely clear as to where these speed limits apply.
