A string of calamitous decisions by our head councillor Tony Troughton has culminated in the installation of a traffic light system on Straight Road, Old Windsor. This all stems from the pedestrianisation of the local shops a few years back, which forced all traffic to use just one junction. This, inevitably, led to tragedy when a local resident was killed earlier this year. This has triggered Troughton to impose a 30mph speed limit on the road as well as install a set of traffic lights on a 3 month trial basis. It has only been a matter of days since the installation and the lights are already causing havoc for anyone driving through Old Windsor. If every single one of us can see within a few days that these lights are a bad idea, it beggars belief that the council need 3 months to make up their mind. Please therefore sign this petition and also join the Facebook group "Say NO to the Old Windsor traffic lights system!" Thank you.

Tiffany Crawford, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: The temporary lights have caused major disruption to the traffic which in turn is likely to increase danger as motorists become frustrated. Drivers are taking back routes which is increasing traffic through residential areas and villages.
sam harris, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: i agree i dont think traffic lights would help, fair enough lowering the speed limit, why not just add a few more cameras they wouldnt hold the traffic up?
