Speed bumps for Wereton Road - who's in favour? Please sign!
In light of the recent tragic accident that has occured on Wereton Road outside the Scout Hall, where a man was knocked down and his dog killed. I would like to propose that we install speed bumps at some point along Wereton Road, this would ensure that any traffic travelling at high-speed (like the car the other night) would slow down.
Wereton Road is very busy especially at school-time with mums and dads walking their children to and from school. With the pavements being so poor, I sometimes see elderly people on the roads, either walking or using mobility scooters, trying to avoid the slippery (especially in winter-time), broken pavements. Again, any car travelling at speed could easily knock them over - I believe speed bumps could help to stop this from happening. I think the sooner we act on this the better as now is the ideal time.
"Prevention is better than cure" and this could prevent future fatalities. Ourselves and our pets should be safe. The other night could have been so much worse.... Imagine if it was a few minutes later and one or more of the children leaving the scout hall were killed?!! This could be your child... my child... your father or your beloved pet. Let's come together as a community to prevent any further accidents.
