Petition for Speed Bumps
As you know, Hout Bay International School is located to the left of Main Road, at the intersection of Payne Street and BP Garage. The safety of our children is at risk, especially during arrival at 8:00 am and dismissal at 4:00 PM, largely due to the disregard for safe speed limits by motorists travelling along Main Road and Payne Street. I, along with others, have regularly witnessed vehicles travelling far in excess of the 60 mile per hour speed limit. Additionally, parents have expressed concern for the safety of their children who must cross the streets when walking to and from school.
This poses a great danger to the residents and children who live here. We have to be very careful when using these roads. I want to request The City of Cape Town to build some speed-bumps along the road to slow down these speeding cars and motorcycles. We believe you’ll identify with our fear of accidents involving not only our children but us the inhabitants, visiting guests and our “four legged” family. Speed plays its role having caused quite unnecessary loss of life and heartache.This is a matter of utmost urgency. Please sign the petition at http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/petition-for-sp... to accompany our motivational letter to City of Cape Town.
