We the undersigned petition the council to Cricklewood Lane is a busy road with churches, schools, shops, cyclists, pedestrians, buses and car users. The current speed limit is 30MPH, however the cars and motorcycles come down and up the road/hill very fast and currently, there are no speed humps or any other type of traffic calming measures to prevent vehicles and motorbikes from moving fast—seemingly well in excess of the current speed limit.
Crossing the road with speeding vehicles poses a grave risk to pedestrians. We are therefore concerned about the possibility of a serious incident and want the security of a safe road for all users.
We are therefore petitioning for:
? a 20MPH speed limit on Cricklewood Lane;
? a road survey to identify measures to make the road safer, e.g. speed humps or road narrowing measures; a good example can be found outside Hampstead School, just over the border in the London Borough of Camden;
? installation of identified road safety measures.
A failure to act to protect the safety
Statistics of road traffic incidents confirm our concerns,
showing there are more incidents than would be expected for a road
of this nature. This is particularly worrying given that many small
children use this road, especially in the absence of pedestrian a
crossing in the locality.
We are extremely concerned that failure of Barnet Council to act on
this will result in a serious incident soon. We are petitioning the
Council to introduce measures to ensure motorists maintain a speed
of 20MPH, ideally by installing speed cameras, or failing that,
This ePetition runs from 17/08/2020 to 08/10/2020.
