Killer roads

Can someone inflict some violence on the Dominion Post sub-editor who came up with the headline Speed limit lowered to 80km/h on killer road.

Unless the road jumped out and bludgeoned motorists to death, it is not a killer road. It may be an unsafe road, or a road where people drive too fast for the conditions, but it is not a killer road.

References to killer train crossings should also generate physical punishment for said sub-editors.
