Petition Tag - speed bumps
After my boyfriend's son was knocked over in a hit and run on this road this morning, I decided enough was enough.
Too many innocent children are losing their lives on this stretch of road and nobody is doing anything about it. Taxis are running red lights, driving down the shoulder of the road and mowing down children left, right and centre.
This needs to end!
We the residents along the Holcombe road are writing this petition due to the constant speeding down our street.
Holcombe road is used as a major through road in Warnbro and it seems people are treating it as a 70KM zone rather than a 50KM which is what it is meant to be in residential areas.
We have on numerous occasions called the police asking for something to be done, and have yet to see any action.
There have been a few incidents now of animals been killed on the street, and we fear it is only a matter of time before it could be one of our children.
We are pleading with you to please do something about this problem before it is to late.
Artesia Blvd is a community street ending in a dead end. There are numerous families with children residing on and near this street. As a result, there are many children playing outside, riding bikes and scooters, and traveling to friends houses, as well as students going to/returning home from school, people running and walking their pets, construction workers and school buses.
There have been numerous accounts of speeders down this road and the roads feeding into it. We have even seen someone drive into the Artesia Blvd water feature. Several accounts have even been brought to the police. Now, we are witnessing near collisions, people nearly being hit by careless drivers speeding down the road.
I am afraid for mine and my children's safety, as are other parents and residents of Artesia. We would like to see this problem resolved before anyone is injured. This is a concern that has gone unchecked for long enough.
Market street in Centreville, Alabama is in desperate need of speed bumps.
There are at least a dozen children that live on the street.
Drivers do not abide by the speed limit making it dangerous for residents and their visitors.
Due to habitual high-speed racing, on Lathrop Rd (off of Barbara Terry and near the levee) and the potential danger of running into pedestrians, private homes and city property as well as the unnecessary noise, speed bumps are requested to be placed in order to curb this behavior.
Cordero Drive is the main bypass linking Deer Creek Neighborhood to Falcon Ridge Neighborhood - there is heavy traffic daily that utilizes this street and has a history of excessive speeding (+ 25 miles per hour which is the posted speed limit).
This concern has been presented to the City Council of Cibolo on more than one occassion due to ongoing safety concerns of the street.
After yet another traffic accident this morning 01/02/2013 between a car and a transit van on the Grieve Road, I seriously think that Inverclyde Council should get their finger out and do something about this road before someone is KILLED!
Speed bumps or something similar is very much needed.
My name is Samantha Hoeg. I am a San Francisco native living in the Excelsior District of San Francisco. I have lived in this neighborhood for most of my life and it has been obvious for years that many people driving through this area drive at excessively high speeds whipping over the many hills making this neighborhood dangerous for pedestrians, children at play and the many dogs that occupy this community. It is also a short walk to Mclaren Park, the largest park in the city and a popular park to take your dog out for its afternoon walk.
One week ago a lady from this neighborhood lost her dog to a hit and run on the corner of Vienna and Avalon, where there is no stop sign. There is no reason to be driving that fast just because you can through these areas! Avalon is one of the steepest hills in the Excelsior District with the "right away" allowing drivers to exceed unnecessary speeds. One week later, today January 25th, yet again a dog was killed by a high speed driver in front of my house, 126 Vienna street at about 10:30 am. I had to witness as my neighbor run over to pick up his dead pet.
Yes we, as dog owners, should practice more caution keeping our dogs on leashes, but having more speed restriction on at least Vienna and Avalon will only prevent more of these unnecessary tragedies from occurring. Are we going to wait until it is a small child of the neighborhood that falls victim to this?
Please help us make the Excelsior District a safer place for all its residents, both human and animal alike.
The Whispering Hills Board Agreed to and Acknowledged the need for Speed Bumps/Humps on Redbud Lane.
Speed Bumps were ordered and put in place. Speed Bumps were accepted, by the majority of residents, but a Style Change was requested. Speed bumps were removed and never replaced.
This area has a walking trail exit, creek where children play and fish, and is a downhill invitation to speed. A future park is also proposed for this area of Redbud.
Many children and animals live on or off of Walton Lane, and have a difficult time when crossing the street, or taking a walk.
This in large part is due to the dangerous speeds at which drivers drive when passing through the neighborhood.
This is unsafe, and measures need to be taken.
I am writing to express my profound concern for the safety of the children in my neighbourhood. In the last month have since seen 2 children have close encounters with vehilces.
There is a playground at the bottom of Martlet Place on the turn, therefore children are always present in this area. The amount of vehicles that speed through this area are ridiculous.
We currently have "children at play" signs posted in the area which do no justice. I have spoke to residents in the area who have expressed the same concern as myself. Myself and the residents in this area are hoping to be able to get speed bumps put in place on Martlet Place.
I would also like to add that the playground on Martlet is the pick-up and drop-off area for the school buses. I feel it is only a matter of time before a child is seriously injured.
In the last year two kids were hit by speeding vehicles traveling on Peach Place which has a speed limit of 25 mph. On this road are two churches and a neighborhood park which is located on a hill. I have been living on this road for over twenty years and I've witnessed a high speed chase and a four year run over by a truck, on New Year's Day.
I have a nine year old son who rides his bike to the park with his friends and I have a fear that one day a car would come speeding over that hill and injure more children.
On behalf of a number of residences north of Bloor Street West and the surrounding area I wanted to bring to your attention our concerns surrounding the safety of our children in this area as it relates to traffic and roads.
Thank you to all who have supported this campaign.
This is a petition to add speed bumps on the 700 block of Ada St adjacent to Industrial St. This street is being used by many vehicles who are attempting to access the Industrial. As many of us have witnessed, many drivers are focusing on quickly getting onto or off of the Boulevard. They are not taking responsibility to slow down in this family oriented neighborhood.
We have 2 children who lives on this street and there are many other children in this neighborhood. We feel it is our duty to take every precaution for the safety of our children but we need your help. We hope you will agree that the addition of speed bumps on this street will considerably add to their safety.
Please help protect our children's lives by signing this petition.
This petition seeks to bring to the attention of Fife Council public anger at the proliferation of speed bumps, or inverted potholes on our local roads. Speed bumps cause huge damage to small, environmentally friendly cars whilst 4x4s are exempt.
They are used by councillors to satisfy the need-to-be-seen-to-be-working mantra, and have no consideration for the impact on vehicles. Speed bumps are constructed in so many different shapes and sizes that the result is their is no correct way to cross them. The burden on the taxpayer is further reinforced by damage caused to emergency vehicles which need to travel at high speeds along our roads.
Motorists are paying record levels of fuel duty and road tax, yet we are forking out more in repairs to our suspension and tyres caused by speed bumps. Speed bumps divert attention away from the real reason for accidents on our roads which is alcohol and drug abuse. Most motorists drive responsibly, so stop punishing us !
For many years, drivers in Nampa, Idaho have been speeding around a long stretch of road in Nampa, Idaho. Discovery Place turns into E. Iowa Ave and is across the street from Greenhurst Elementary School.
The street is long and has a slight curve as the road turns into E. Iowa Ave. Residents along our street have had cars in their yards...almost been run over in the middle of the day and had their mailboxes knocked over too many times to count.
There are families with children and pets along this street who are afraid to let their children play outside due to the speeding cars. Unfortunately, the street is wide and it lends itself to speeding.
After witnessing a pedestrian/car accident on the 3rd of February I have decided to organise this petition to introduce traffic calming devices on Henry Street in Spring Hill.
There are numerous short and long term apartment patrons, pub patrons, and 2 child care centres within 100 metres of the street. Combine that with literally hundreds of cars per day using it as a shortcut, this sort of accident was bound to happen, and will continue to happen unless something is done.
Henry Street is currently 2 way and only barely wide enough for that, let alone the speeds and blind spots accessing Astor Terrace, John Street and Leichhardt Streets.
We call on Brisbane City Council, Queensland Transport and Brisbane City Police to work together to discourage streets like this to slip under the radar when it comes to traffic management.
Douglas Avenue is a quiet, family oriented street in Lindenlea. It is only one block long, but there are currently at least 10 children living on this street that are all under the age of 12 (with two more on the way).
There is currently NO posted speed limit on the surrounding roads, and according to the City of Ottawa, this defaults the speed limit to 50km/h.
According to Safe Kids Canada a child stuck by a car traveling at 50km/h has an 80% chance of dying as a result of the "accident". Reducing the speed to 30km/h means that child has a 95% chance of surviving.
The number of incidents of speeding drivers along this street is shocking and unacceptable. We are tired of people speeding through our neighborhood because it provides quick access to Beechwood Avenue from the apartments and other residences along Putman Avenue. There is already a better street one block away (Springfield Road) that provides safer access to Beechwood (because it is wider, longer, and there is a traffic light).
Many of the residents often remark that it is only a matter of time before one of the children is hit by a speeding car.
Many of the speeding drivers are repeat offenders that do it every day.
For the safety of our children, please install speed bumps! We already have speed bumps for Hillsdale Ave East.... for the same reasons, we need speed bumps for the west side of Hillsdale.
Hillsdale Ave West is the only "through way" street btn Eglinton and Chaplin Crescent, therefore cars speed down Hillsdale Ave West very quickly!
Wood Rd has become a hazard to the residents living on it's domain. Travelers cutting through from Lyndon Ln often speed through Wood Rd during prominent times when children are playing and and residents are walking.
This is a newly developed area and are in desperate need of cleaning up the area:
Such as the Viaduct that is on 25th and Senour Street which is falling apart. Debris underneath the Viaduct and No Pedestrian Walkway.
Speed Bumps on Senour/Mary/Hillock Street. Stop Sign on Mary and Hillock Street.
No Outlet Sign on Hillock/Mary Street and No Outlet Sign on Stark Street.
Walnut Place is a community street ending in a dead end. There are numerous families with children residing on this street. As a result, there are just about always children playing outside, riding bikes and scooters, and traveling to friends houses.
Since the city failed to see fit to install any sidewalks, the children are forced to use the street.
There is a sign posted at the begining of Walnut Place warning drivers of children playing and Speed Limit of 20 mph. Unfortunatly, that sign is rarely abherred to. There have been numerous accounts of speeders down this road. Several accounts have even been brought to the police departments attention with no avail.
I am afraid for my childrens saftey as is other parents and residents of Walnut Place. We would like to see this problem resolved before one of us loses a child or someone gets severly hurt. This is a problem that has gone unchecked for long enough.
As a current resident on Valleyview Way, it has been witnessed time and time again, cars going way beyond the speed limit on our residential street.
There is also a blind spot while going over a small hill where it is very difficult to see (cars speed over this blind spot).
My younger brother was just hit by a car on August 11, 2006 and was injured with a broken leg.
As a community, we would like to do everything in our power to prevent this from happening again by the use of speed bumps, especially at the blind spot of our street.

REQUEST FOR SPEED BUMPS ON Melville Ave., Toronto
This is a petition to add speed bumps on Melville.
This street is often used by cars, taxis and delivery vehicles to avoid traffic on Dupont St. between Shaw Ave. and Christie St..
As many of us have seen, many drivers drive quickly down the street., and not taking responsiblity to slow down in this family oriented neighborhood.
We believe speeds bumps would deter these type of drivers without compromising the ability of emergency vehicles to access the street, or the number of parking spots.
July 12, 2005: Residents oppose the addition of a proposed two-story parking structure at a neighboring car dealership.
Residents request that Santa Monica City Council approve speed bumps on 13th Street due to execssive speed by mechanics and potential buyers speeding beyond the 30 mph limit.
We are seeking the City of Tampa to repave and resurface West Napoleon Avenue between South Macdill Avenue and South Englewood Avenue. The road is very narrow and unlevel.
In addition, we are seeking to have speed bumps installed to reduce the speed of traffic.
There has always been a large volume of traffic moving through this street, and hopefully this will reduce it a little.
The neighbors of North Star are concerned about the safety of our children, animals, and other neighbors who enjoy walking outdoors. If you are one of the neighbors who are concerned about the safety in our community, please take the time to sign this petition to install SPEED BUMPS along JUPITER RD.
