Petition Tag - traffic
This petition is designed to encourage Aberdeen City Council to reconsider the changes made in Autumn 2008 to the approach to the Kingswells Roundabout.
It is intended for commuters who are now seriously inconvenienced by the tail-backs on the approach to the roundabout from the north.
The A1307 between the A11 and Haverhill (just ten miles) has seen over 16 deaths, 31 Serious Accidents and 99 Slight Injury Accidents in the last five years and since March this year six people (three children) have lost their lives on the road. There are 10 changes of speed limit in 6 miles, several applicable for one third of a mile or less.
We are told that ‘most’ of the fatalities on the A1307 are not related to excessive speed but we believe that if speed limits were reduced then this would have a positive effect. We believe – and we hope that you agree – that this road needs ‘calming’ in the way that only a lower and properly-enforced speed limit can achieve.
The peak period vehicle interval is 1.8 seconds, making this a very difficult road to access at these times of day, however people are still expected to cross the road (up to three lanes of traffic) in the dark with traffic travelling at 60mph just to catch a bus. Two children have lost their lives crossing the road in the last two years.
Vehicles from the villages have to risk their lives to exit their own villages and a roundabout to alleviate these problems and save lives was rejected due to congestion issues related to the high volume of traffic on the road – they just dropped the issue and left residents with the problem. Surprisingly Just four years later Cambridgeshire County Council stated that the road could accommodate an additional 250 lorries per day on the road from a large distribution centre... putting vehicles ahead of people.
Considerable housing and industrial development will continue at Haverhill, inevitably creating even more commuter and HGV traffic on the A1307 but no plans are in place to accommodate it and improvements will inevitably have to come from road safety budgets which mean people have to lose their lives first and this is TOTALLY unacceptable.
We want Cambridgeshire County Council to take immediate action, to reduce speed limits immediately and to make representations to the government for funding to put long term improvements into place.
Whether you blame the arrival of the Hamptons development for the increased traffic problems on Central Road or not, the fact remains that these problems exist and will not be alleviated by the addition of a likely 343 new residents with accompanying vehicles on the site.
We are worried that already over-stretched GP provision will struggle, and may have an impact on other local services.
SAFER STREETS FOR HILL HEALTH CENTER – COLUMBUS AVE. OFFICE
As a supporter of this petition, I am hereby requesting that the City of New Haven get involved in assisting to resolve the continual problem of speeding traffic that we are experiencing, hoping to gain the respect for the crosswalk that is in front of the Hill Health Center on Columbus Ave and Surrounding territories.
Our Center serves over 150,000 patients a year and it is vitally important to us to follow up with the safety of the patients and together as a community begin to make the necessary changes in this crosswalk zone. It would be devastating to have someone get hurt or killed before something positive happens and in order to avoid this, I sincerely urge the City of New Haven to enforce a method of safety (perhaps a stop light) for our patients who remain at risk.

Only 2 days ago (1st july 2008) a 45 year old man was killed when he went under a lorry on his motorbike, this is not the 1st fatal accident and something needs to be done to slow the traffic down.
Cildren walk down this road to go to school.
Heber City has been working on a large commercial development at the "hub" intersection (SR 189 and US 40).
A recent study analysis indicates that, upon completion of that development, the intersection will become a level of service class "F" (UDOT says "LOS F represents the breakdown of traffic flow – “failure”of the system.)
The school campuses on Peninsula Drive on the Bellarine are a daily mess with traffic congestion. There are three schools on one road that is not a through road. The entrance and exit for Peninsula Drive is Andersons Road.
Automobiles try to queue up to the entrance of the St. Thomas primary school while buses and automobiles attempt to get past the queue to access the St. Ignatius College and the Bellarine Secondary College. A lack of parking sparks people to park in No Standing zones and buses to make their own lane with the median strip.
Dangerous conditions exist for pedestrians and school children on bicycles. Road rules seem not to exist with frustration of drivers taking over.
Children who attend Gideons Elementary School on Mary St have no safe option for crossing Metropolitan Pkwy, the closest intersection to the school heading West.
The excessive speeding traffic has simply gotten out of control on Brookside Drive. Almost every car speeds through our neighborhood at 35 to 50 miles per hour.
This is a street full of small children and people who love to walk their dogs and push their child filled strollers on this sidewalkless street. Even the Sheriffs department won't park their radar trailer on the street because they are concerned it will be hit.
You can imagine how unsafe we feel when we're strolling through our neighborhood.
Every day, my children have to cross Leyton High Road at the crossing by Dawlish Rd.
This is just an ordinary zebra crossing so traffic just carries on as if there's no-one there. Sometimes they even speed up when they see us.
This needs to be addressed before somebody is killed there. As I see it we urgently need a crossing controlled by traffic lights.
It has now been established that Havering Council have approved the building of 450 new homes on the old Harold Wood Hospital site. The owner and builder of the properties will be Countryside Properties.
Following a brief consultation exercise it has also come to light that Countryside have acquired additional land and intend to apply for planning permission to build a further 424 homes on the site.
Therefore the village of Harold Wood will become home for 2000 more people, 1500 cars and many other problems.
Countryside Properties do not intend to have any new school, doctors, dentists or any other new service, except a bus route.
This will cause not only further delay in receiving medical attention but you will be sitting in your cars longer as the increase in traffic will ensure that Harold Wood becomes the new free car park for Havering Council.
I am asking that residents let the authorities know of any objections or even congratulations they may have to the plan.
I hope that the petition will gather enough objections to at least ensure that some sense will be made of any development.
Thank you for taking the time to show your feelings.
SAVE BATH’S GREEN CORRIDOR!
£54 million of government money may be awarded to the City of Bath for a new transport plan. B&N.E.S intend to invest a massive chunk of this public money on a 'Bus Rapid Transit System' (BRT), which will run from an extended Newbridge Park and Ride before adjoining onto a former railway line (a mile long stretch of green land), between Brassmill Lane and Windsor Bridge Rd.
This is part of a wider proposal to join Newbridge Park & Ride in the west of Bath, to a Park and Ride at Bathampton Meadows in the east, via the city centre.
The council estimates that the new route will benefit customers by saving them an average of two minutes on a trip from Newbridge to the City Centre, in a diesel, bendy bus.
The segregated route will bypass the Upper and Lower Bristol Road in the west, both of which are both relatively un-congested. The buses will then travel on existing roads in the city centre and the east, where congestion is a real problem.
Why Oppose The BRT Route?
Unproven benefits and uncertain outcomes:
The claim that the BRT will reduce congestion is very debatable. It is basically a decentralised car park scheme which will encourage people to drive rather than use public transport. Car users will be attracted to the P&R which is in a residential area on the outskirts of Bath. The scheme will displace some city centre traffic, but not enough to make a real long term difference.
The BRT will add to congestion on Park and Ride access routes and at congestion "hotspots", such as Windsor Bridge road and London Road.
Through traffic and “school run” traffic will not be reduced by the BRT
Unrealistic costs and high financial risk:
Costs will definitely rise far above the over optimistic estimates put forward.
Complicated road junctions, bridges, re-engineering of major sewers and contested compulsory purchase orders all add up to serious risk which has not been properly assessed. Major works, new to the plan, have not been accounted for within the budget.
Council tax will be raised and residents of Bath will end up footing the bill when the costs exceed the agreed national funding.
Inadequate consideration of negative impacts:
The scheme will have significant negative impacts which have not been properly considered.
An established green lane, habitat to diverse wildlife and mature trees will be destroyed. Hundreds of households will suffer air, noise and light pollution, vibration and loss of privacy. Businesses will be demolished and forced out and private gardens will be taken by force. Local people will lose a significant green space, currently used by many for recreation. The new road will form a hard physical barrier between communities and will be a magnet for anti social behavior at night. Large, diesel bendy buses will affect the character of narrow city centre streets and harm trade.
A 21st century vision should aim for zero on street emissions and put people first.
The people of Bath are being let down by the council’s lack of vision.
Join us in a peaceful protest, as we deliver our petition to the council at The Guildhall, Bath, 6.30, 20th November.
Please choose to save the green corridor and support local people by signing our petition!
American families spend 18% of their household budgets on transportation, making it the second largest household expenditure after housing.
A study on U.S. government spending and its impact on worker productivity estimated that a 10-year $100 billion increase in public transport spending would boost worker output by $521 billion, compared with $237 billion for the same spending on highways.
AAA members who rely almost exclusively on automobiles for their daily transportation needs, would still opt to spend more money on public transit than on new roads, according to a recent survey.
Business output is positively affected by transit investment. A sustained program of transit capital investment will generate an increase of $2 million in business output. After 20 years, these benefits increase to $31 million.
Every dollar that U.S. taxpayers invest in public transportation generates $6 or more in economic returns.
In suburban Philadelphia, the total increase in residential real estate value in neighborhoods with train service is estimated to be over $1.45 billion.
In Los Angeles, .80 of every $1.00 spent on public transport gets recirculated in the region, translating into $3.80 in goods and services. Conversely, .85 of every $1.00 spent on gas leaves the region.
New Jersey now has 600,000 more registered vehicles than drivers.
The value per square foot of commercial space near Metrorail stations in Northern Virginia has jumped more than 600 percent since the first station opened in 1977.
In comparison with private vehicles, public transportation generates 95% less carbon monoxide, 92% less in volatile organic compounds, and about half as much carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide per passenger mile.
A study conducted before, during and after the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta examined the effect of concerted efforts to improve traffic conditions to accommodate the wave of spectators and its effect on asthma attacks. The city made 24-hour transportation available, added buses, closed streets to cars and implemented flexible work schedules. The study showed the result of these efforts was a remarkable decline in ground-level ozone and other air pollutants, which reduced the number of emergency rooms visits for asthma during and shortly after the games.
We, the undersigned residents of Chateau Jon Subdivision, oppose the rezoning
and development of the 6 acre property located on Hatchell Lane Section 30,
T6S, R3E, G.L.D., City of Denham Springs for the following reasons:
1. Traffic impact: with a Junior High School, a large church, surrounding
neighborhoods and businesses, the traffic would be such that it could endanger
the lives of the many children that walk to and from school. Furthermore, with
Hatchell Lane being a two laned road, it would cause significant difficulty at the
intersections of Centerville and Hatchell as well as Hwy 190 and Hatchell, both
precarious intersections today.
2. By opposing this rezoning request, it will maintain the overall appearance
of Hatchell lane which is comprised of primarily single-family homes. By
allowing multi-family housing it will compromise the integrity of the surrounding
areas and could potentially reduce the value of surrounding properties.
3. Is there any place within the city limits of Denham Springs in which
there is multi-family housing?
There are elements of the Canterbury Road Project, that include plans to (despite the existing bypass) actively discourage through traffic coming into the main Village Centre.
The local shops and Businesses have already suffered due to the bypass - through traffic means passing trade - and it is very likely if the junction priority change at Aerodrome Road, the traffic light priority changes and any other measures to reduce traffic volume and encourage everyone to use the bypass, that at least some of the Businesses may suffer, or indeed close down.
Then there will be no Village Centre to speak of.
Width restrictions, or weight restrictions would be a simple measure to discourage the HGV's. Traffic calming measures would be welcomed.
Speed Limits in the Brockhill area of Redditch are being regularly ignored.
Of particular concern are the following roads:
The B4184 (30mph)/Brockhill Drive (40mph)
Lily Green Lane (30mph)
Salters Lane (30mph)
Local residents regularly observe traffic breaking the speed limit.
At evenings and weekends the engine noise of excessive acceleration can frequently be heard specifically on the B4184, but also on Lily Green Lane and Salters Lane.
Residents are not satisfied that the police do not react to the reckless endangerment of life in this area and would like our elected representatives to ensure that this matter is fully investigated and action is taken to prevent future injury and or loss of life.
As of right now there are 6 other intersections considered to be more important/dangerous, that are in need of traffic lights.
Arvada can only budget enough to put in 1 light per year. With this it would be 6 years before a light would be even considered to put up there.
A traffic light costs roughly $250,000 dollars to put up. If the city does not think it is priority, friends and family of the victims of this fatal crash do.
If everyone can donate as much as they can, I feel we can raise enough money by the end of this year to get the light put up on 62nd and Ward rd and finally take care of this problem that has been occurring for nearly 15 years now.
The City of Ann Arbor has granted a parking permit to Sanita's Construction Co. of Clarkston, MI to use the court at the end of South Seventh Street to stage a construction site.
There are numerous large construction vehicles stored there daily in addition to piles of stone, sand and dirt and a portable toilet, which is not fenced in. The construction equipment is used for the footing drain disconnection in the Morehead/ Churchill area. This project has been in process for five months.
The court is in a residential area and is next to a public playground. The playground and park are also a major traffic area for children from the Northbrook area to go to and from school. This is a very dangerous situation for the students walking past the site. The vehicles drive at too high a rate of speed to be able to stop quickly in case of an emergency.
The constant noise and traffic has been excessive on S. Seventh, Morehead and Delaware Street, although the work is now in the Churchill Downs subdivision. There are several courts over in that area that would accommodate the equipment

The Chief Justice,
Mumbai High Court,
Sub : S O S APPEAL FROM RESIDENTS OF SAKET COMPLEX, THANE TO STOP MOVEMENT OF HEAVY VEHICLES ON SAKET ROAD.
On behalf of 4000 residents residing in Saket CHS Ltd. and Saket Towers, I am filing this letter to you with an urgent plea to kindly intervene and give us relief for the various reasons mentioned under alongwith facts :
1. Vide its order dated July 26,2006, the Mumbai High Court through its respectable Judges, Justice RM Lodha and Justice Naresh H Patil, restricted the movement of Heavy vehicles in the city of Thane, from Majiwade junction to Meenatai Thackeray Chowk to K Villa up to Kalwa Bridge and onwards towards Vitava and Belapur.
2. Delivering the judgement the Hon. Judges stated that (quote) : Pt. no. 2 : The AGP informs us that a meeting of the Collector, Thane, Commissioner, Thane, Municipal Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner(Traffic), Thane and City Engineer, Thane Municipal Corporation took place on July 24, 2006.
3. Pt. no. 3 of the said judgement further states that (quote) : The AGP placed before us a change route map,marked X for identification purposes. As per the said route map, the traffic from National Highway No. 3 and National Highway No. 4 now passes through the road marked by arrows from Navi Mumbai to Old Agra Rd. According to the decision taken in the said meeting, the traffic from National Highway No. 3 and National Highway No. 4 does not pass through Meenatai Thackeray Chowk ( Castle Mill). We are thus satisfied that the grievance of the petitioner raised through the PIL has been redressed and no further orders need to be passed in the writ petition.(unquote).
4. After this order, the Thane Municipal Corporation and Traffic Police diverted the entire traffic of Heavy Vehicles on SAKET MARG.
5. The area through which the traffic is now passing consists of a cluster of 24 buildings( 7 storied) and 3 Towers ( 19 storied) – all residential premises. There is a School and Junior College in the area which works in 2 shifts. In fact, there are less residential buildings in the so-called city area from Meenatai
Thackeray Chowk to Kalwa Bridge, as the road passes through a big lake on one side, a playground on the other side and a Jail premises later.
6. We would like to stress here that the Hon. High Court does not possess, nor is it expected to possess the specialized knowledge about the effects of the movement of Heavy Traffic from different areas of the City.
7. Looking at the trends seen for the last few years in the High Court regarding PILs, it is noticed that the judiciary is now taking over the role of Bureaucracy without having to take the responsibility and in the course, instead of hauling up the concerned officers responsible for the mess, the Courts are indulging in trying to sort out the mess itself.
8. In the current case, we would like to inform you that there are 4000 people residing in the Saket vicinity who are bearing the brunt of the irresponsible decision to divert Highway traffic through a stretch of a road meant for residential premises and constructed to withstand only LIGHT VEHICULAR movement.
9. This diversion has created daily nuisance to these thousands of people including school going children, pregnant women, senior citizens and office-goers.
10. IT IS EVIDENT THAT THE THANE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION AND TRAFFIC DEPT. PREFERRED TO KEEP THE HON. HIGH COURT IN DARK ABOUT THE REGULAR CIVIL SUIT NO. 239/2005, FILED BY M/S. DAYANAND NENE AND RAJENDRA ABHYANKAR, BOTH RESIDENTS OF SAKET CHS LTD., WHICH IS PENDING IN THE CIVIL COURT, THANE, FOR RELIEFS REGARDING THE VERY TRAFFIC ON THE SAID ROAD ON VARIOUS GROUNDS INCLUDING THE POOR CONDITION OF THE ROAD.
11. A survey conducted by the Thane Municipal Corporation, after diverting this traffic on Saket Marg produced a shocking picture. It was found that in 24 hours more than 14,000 vehicles ply to and fro on this stretch of 4 kms – movement which has destroyed the road and left behind huge craters, rubble, pollution and NOISE POLLUTION.
12. Yes, during night time the noise levels due to constant brakeing and honking by these vehicles reaches decibel levels exceeding 130. The Supreme Court / High Courts have been pro-active in barring usage of Loud Speakers or Crackers after 10 pm. So, our plea is ban movement of Heavy Vehicles near Residential premises after 10 pm!
13. Here, we would like you to consider the following :
• Whether all parties present in the July 24 meeting have acted in conformity with the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act?
• If they have acted in conformity with the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, whether the diversion of Highway led traffic through an internal residential road can be construed of PROTECTING THE INTEREST OF PUBLIC SAFETY AND DOES NOT AMOUNT TO VIOLATION OF FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT AS GUARANTEED UNDER ARTICLE 21 OF THE CONSTITUTION OF INDIA?
• Whether such disowning of responsibility which leads to residents resorting to remedies of Raasta Roko or Bandhs are in the best interest of society?
On this background, we have no alternative but to invoke extraordinary jurisdiction of this Hon. High Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India for the protection of the rights of people as guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India and seeking redress of our grievance to implement the provisions of Motor Vehicles Act so as to maintain and uphold the interest of Public Safety and not allow it redundant at any cost and in any circumstances.
Hence this petition!!

80. A612 Bus Plugs
Recently the A612 from Burton Joyce through to Gedling was changed. However, although it allows traffic to flow better towards Netherfield, it now blocks all access towards Gedling, and indeed from Gedling too, unless you travel the extra few miles, to go all the way around the area, causing more delays for you, wasting time and petrol, and risking getting completely lost in Nottingham as I did.
The bus plug system basically consists of traffic lights that can only be triggered by a bus, otherwise they remain red. This forces people to get frustrated and go through them! This obviously poses a danger.
Due to a sound assessment done 17 years ago, many of the units in our co-op do not have central air conditioning.
Residents of these units are able to hear the increased noise of the trains at night and during the day, especially with the windows open.
The sound of the trains, particularly at night, has been greatly increased with the construction of a third railroad track beside the existing lines and is expected to increase more so as trains begin to run regularly on these lines.
By adding a new third track to the main rail line, the Government of Ontario expects to increase rush hour service along these lines to Hamilton so they won't conflict with the freight train traffic, therefore freeing up all three lines to be used at the same time and thus increasing freight, VIA rail and Go Transit traffic in our community.
Dear BHC Residents,
As many of you know, Block House Creek needs another entrance/exit to our neighborhood. Currently, there is a petition online to open Scottsdale Drive as a solution and we are adding Block House Drive as the solution.
On May 27th, the Blockhouse Creek MUD Board approved a resolution to be sent to the City of Cedar Park and Williamson County offices, to open Block House Drive to 183-A, as another exit/entrance as they would keep it a private road for BHC residents (unfortunately, this isn't enough and it is why we have this online petition for the residents of BHC to voice their desires).
We believe, Block House Drive South is the most logical solution, because it does not compromise the safety of BHC children and/or disturb the peace of our neighborhood. It is why most of us purchased a home in BHC. Scottsdale is probably the quickest solution but unfortunately it compromises what many of us believe in (indirectly or directly). Scottsdale opens up to driveways, neighborhood children and potential disaster. We understand that Block House Drive may take some time to open up but it is the best solution for EVERYONE in the neighborhood. There are no houses that face the road, only fences and the safety of BHC children is not compromised and the peace in the neighborhood is sustained. It's the perfect solution.
We are asking you to join fellow BHC neighbors by signing this online petition.
**NOTE** IT IS IMPORTANT AFTER YOU SIGN THE PETITION TO PLEASE LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD TO THE CTRMA ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS ISSUE: EMAIL: INFO@CTRMA.ORG THEY WANT YOUR EMAILS ABOUT THIS. ALSO, MAKE A CALL TO CYNTHIA LONGS OFFICE AT 260-4280 - YOUR CALL WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE. ***********
The main points for opening the road are:
Traffic congestion in front of the elementary school, traffic backups on Creek Run, Blockhouse Dr. to New Hope. Our children walking to school need to be safe!
Emergency vehicles do not have a clear route to the back part of the neighborhood. In case of an emergency they need a quicker route to us!!
Quicker access to the new Hospital/Medical Center being built.
In case of an emergency evacuation, residents should have more exits than we currently do.
The city of Cedar Park has a proposed fire and EMS station at the corner of New Hope and 183-A.
When the commuter train begins, the RR Track will be extremely busy. Traffic will become backed up on BHC and New Hope during rush hour.
Environmental concerns because of the extra mileage we have to drive to get to our destinations.
The routes we do have to travel take us by school zones, and thru other neighborhoods.
There is no evidence that crime increases because of more access to neighborhoods.
Easier access for the new shopping centers, potential buyers will not move here if they realize how difficult it is to get to the shopping/hospitals.
There are not enough exits/entrances for our 2200 residents!!
The most important concern of the people is the safety of our children once they leave the house every morning and when they get off the bus each evening.
During the fall semesters of school it is dark when the children congregate at the bus stop and there have been reports of registered sex offenders at the bus stop on countless occassions. There have also been reports of parents physically attacking other people's children. There are countless fights and numerous of other acts of malice and thereafter.
On day rainy days the children are soak and wet before they even get on the bus. The majority of the trouble the children get into begins at the overcrowded bus stop. There are three different schools of children at the bus stop at the same time. The police have been called several times for incidents that have taken place at the bus stop.
There is a high volume of traffic at the bus stop especially during drop off. There is no cross walk worker and the youngest child walking to and from the bus stop is five years of age.
We, the people, feel that a lot of these problems can be avoided by the bus simply driving into the circle instead of having the children walk out of the circle to go to school! Thank you very much!
Join us to say “NO” to opening Scottsdale!
On Wednesday, April 25th, the BHC MUD Board voted against opening up Scottsdale Road to Hwy. 183-A by sending a resolution to the City of Cedar Park and Williamson County offices, stating to vacate their right-away to the MUD. Since this time, a small number of Block House Creek residents decided to re-open the issue and ask BHC residents to sign a petition to open Scottsdale.
Our opinion to this is that we to want another alternative road opened within Block House Creek, but not for the safety of our children and the peace of our neighborhood. We believe, in time, Block House Creek Road makes the most sense to open up rather than Scottsdale. There are no houses that face the road, only fences.
We are asking you to join fellow neighbors that will be directly affected by the opening of Scottsdale Rd. to access 183A and say "NO" by signing this online petition.
Harm that will potentially come with opening Scottsdale:
1. Serious injury or a death of a child or pedestrians
walking or riding their bikes along Scottsdale.
2. High speed drivers exiting 183A onto Scottsdale from 60+ MPH onto a 25 MPH zone.
3. Accidents with residents cars when they’re backing out of their driveways onto Scottsdale.
4. Accidents with residents who are trying to get their mail from the mailboxes built on Scottsdale.
5. Accidents involving school children who are getting on/off of school buses at 2 corners on Scottsdale.
6. Two homes on Scottsdale potentially losing their home and/or yard, which will put those families in a financial bind.
7. Increase in traffic from non-residents cutting through Block House Creek to get to Horizon Park, Ridgewood and also to get to their homes that are across 183, by using our main exit.
8. Ruin the quality of life that we have living on and near Scottsdale.
9. The value of our homes (that are specifically on or right off of Scottsdale) will potentially go down because our driveways will be difficult to get in and out of, drive by traffic will be heavy, front yards will no longer be family friendly and our once peaceful area would be filled with traffic and back-ups.
10. Increase in crime rate and access for DWI drivers to drive right past our homes
Please help our families by signing our Petition AGAINST extending Scottsdale Drive onto HWY. 183A! Thank you!
If you would like to help us in the fight to keep our families safe and choose a better solution, please let your voice be heard by:
1. Call or email our County Commissioner Cynthia Long at 260-4280 or email@example.com to let your feelings be known
2. Participate in the online survey on the BHC Owners Association at www.bhcoa.com
We sincerely thank you for your support in helping us maintain our quality of life and the safety of our families!
It has come to our attention that Prestonvale Heights has completed an application with the municipality of Clarington to change the original site plan.
The development of twelve townhouse units where originally planned to front onto Meadowglade Road. However, Prestonvale Heights has completed an application to change the original plans so that the townhomes front onto Beckett Crescent.
86. 3 ROUNDABOUTS
REQUIRED: 3 ROUNDABOUTS ALONG THE A359 MUDFORD ROAD, JUST OUTSIDE OF YEOVIL.
1)On the junction of Stone Lane, Coombe Street Lane and Mudford Road.
2)On the junction of St.Michaels Avenue and Mudford Road.
3)On the junction of Lyde Road and Mudford Road.
If, like me, you regularly use this road, then you will know the 3 junctions that should be made into roundabouts,
Junction "1 & 2" cause long tailbacks in all directions at peak periods, and often 1 causes a knock-on effect with the other.
Junction "3" is unsafe, with vehicles entering Yeovil not realising there is a busy junction and bend there.
The os grid references for each site (displayed as x,y) are
(these can be used in any online map, such as http://www.streetmap.co.uk/)

In my driving history, I have been involved in two wrecks. Both of which the at fault driver did not have insurance. I feel that if the State of Arkansas would have a stricter law against driving without insurance, people would not have to pay for others mistakes.
In Oklahoma City, State Senator Patrick Anderson has a proposal pending in the state Senate which would allow authorities to seize the vehicles of motorists who fail to show proof of liability insurance during a traffic stop. I think this is what Arkansas needs to keep our roads safe and to prevent accidents involving uninsured motorists.
The road on Linnel Drive is at the bottom of a hill with a narrow bend cars and buses park on one side, Parking is most of the time a problem, which has be address to the local MP the council's, your move homes who own the green on the side of the parked vehicle's.
Traffic from the top of the hill come down at speed without slowing down if you trying to get to your car they just dive up on the pavement, My wife was hit last year putting are son in the car she was ok the driver did stop and said sorry, there have been vans coming down and hitting the wing mirrors.
What we want is the grass area to be made into parkin bays to take the vahicles of the road and to have traffic carming put in place on the road to reduce speed.
On October 3, 2006, an innocent bystander was hit by a car, and seriously injured at the intersection of North Frontage Road and College Street, in New Haven, CT.
This incident is just one example of a larger pedestrian safety problem. Unfortunately, accidents and "close-calls" at this intersection are not rare. The New Haven Department of Traffic and Parking reported 23 accidents at North Frontage Road and College Street in 2003 alone, the most recent year for which data is available. (A link to an article written by a local journalist about the same issue is above.)
In response to the dozens of accidents that have taken place at the North Frontage-College intersection, the Department's apathy toward fixing the problem, and given that all adjacent intersections indeed have basic pedestrian safety features in place, we propose the following petition.
Addison Road is being used as a short cut by cars wanting to avoid Seven Dials round-a-bout.
Many families with young children have recently moved into the area and the fast moving traffic poses a considerable danger.
