Implement Speed Limit Enforcement & Road Safety Measures in Ancaster, Lincolnshire.

149 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Our village has a 30mph speed limit but 99% of traffic to not abide by this. You can FEEL the traffic thundering past! It is a tragedy waiting to happen, a child wouldn't stand a chance against those speeds & volume of traffic! Ermine Street also serves as a rat run from A17 to the major routes making the situation even worse! The light up signs that flash if speeding or a speed camera around the bridge area would be a start but I feel road humps is the only way to put a stop to this. When you consider the amount of children all walking to school on a much to narrow footpath this really is a fatal accident waiting to happen & something needs doing FAST before a child is injured or worse, killed! I'm shocked that the council will not do anything about this! There reason?? There has been no serious accidents on this stretch of road!!! I'm completely shocked at this as they are almost saying a child needs to be killed before they will take action!! Please sign & share!!

While the beautiful wide High Street was useful for herding flocks of geese and herds of cattle en route to market, it needs some obstacles to impede the too-fast speed of modern and often heavy vehicles. Look at Dutch street design in small towns. They narrow the roads with plantings and trees, different surfaces to calm traffic, and leave parking along the sides. It is pretty and much safer for children and cyclists, yet wide enough for at least one vehicle at a time.

    As there is a school on the main road, speeding needs to be slowed right down to 20mph by the school.

    In the last few weeks there has been a massive increase in bridge strikes on the railway bridge on the main road through village. This alone presents dangerous situation and tied with the speeding makes the village very unsafe. PLEASE PLEASE keep signing and sharing the petition. The local papers are going to do a story so we need as many signatures as possible before then! Lets together make this village a safe place to live. THANK YOU. Lynsey
