- councillor Jackie Barkhouse and Mayor Peter Kelly
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.
"We, the citizens of the town of Shearwater, petition the city to install speed bumps on Martlet Place. Drivers typically speed through this busy intersection at 50 mph or more while our children are trying to cross on their way to school."
If you are concerned about the safety of the children in our neighbourhood and agree that we need speed bumps installed, please sign our petition.
