About 450 circles were painted along George and Princes streets from Sunday night as part of a range of temporary measures approved by the Dunedin City Council in response to Covid-19.

The measures include lowering the speed limit from 30kmh to 10kmh, adding free parking, letting shops expand onto footpaths, and installing temporary speed humps and circles to remind road users of shared spaces.

How To Be Inarguable

Alister from South Dunedin

People often love to weigh in on our choices & decisions. I have always trusted my gut or intuition. Those close to us can convince us that we need to justify our decisions to them using logic however this can be a downward spiral of crazy-making-ness 😖. Yes I made that word up just then … View morePeople often love to weigh in on our choices & decisions. I have always trusted my gut or intuition. Those close to us can convince us that we need to justify our decisions to them using logic however this can be a downward spiral of crazy-making-ness 😖. Yes I made that word up just then 😁🤩. If you know in your heart ❤ that something is right for you and you say you are doing it because that is how you feel - no-one can say that's wrong. Because that IS how you feel. If we let logic in on our "higher self" it can talk us out of anything... just because it can. It doesn't know what is right for us. Our higher self/universe/god does - tap in, listen, believe, receive.
