A group of students concerned about traffic outside their school have opened a petition calling for action to reduce the dangers being caused by drivers speeding.
The Testbourne students say in their Petition:
We are campaigning for road traffic calming methods on Micheldever road
We have recently noticed the speed vehicles are travelling up and down micheldever road and it is very dangerous. We understand how difficult it is to travel along this road anyway with all of the cars parked outside houses.
We feel by having a calming method along this road will reduce the speed of cars and make them more aware of their surroundings. Many young children need to cross this road to get to the primary school and the secondary school, we want to put parents worries aside and make sure their children get to and from school safely.
We as students have witnessed the dangers of this road and we fill the need to campaign for the safety of others.”
To support their call the Petition can be signed here:
Traffic speed is an ongoing concern in the town and its enforcement is the responsibility of the Police and Hampshire County Council.
