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

137 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.

    The speeds vehicles travel down Ermine Way is dangerous and if nothing is done soon an accident will happen.

    I drive through here most mornings after 6am in a 3.5T van at the posted speed (Slower in fact as when the van says 30 it means 27). I usually get overtaken in the village by impatient drivers who know it is a difficult overtake on the high dyke heading to Cranwell. Two occations the have jumped the temporary lights at the Cranwell end.
