Fix Appin Rd from Cambelltown to Bulli before another innocent life is lost

    1. Petition by

      Justin Anderson

      Australia

My son Brock lost his life on the 28th of September 2012 due to the disgraceful condition of Appin Road. He was only 8 years old.

I’d just told him we were turning around at the next safe place, because the road was so bad in the rain. The last thing I remember is trying to grab for him as the car hit a sheet of water and AQUAPLANED into oncoming cars.

The police found the car was roadworthy, I had no drugs or alcohol in my system, and eyewitnesses say the accident was completely unavoidable.

This road killed my son. And there have been at least three more accidents since -- one car rolled with a mother and her daughter in it.

Something needs to be done NOW before another INNOCENT person loses their life.

Our family will not let Brock become just a statistic for that road. He would want us to be his voice, and that is what we are going to do.

Stop and think, what if the next person to smash on that road is You or a Loved one of yours.

We’re asking the government to DO SOMETHING NOW, PLEASE.

R.I.P BROCK - You will make a difference.

      I never met Brock, or his father. I did go to Primary School with his mother Shannon, who I remember as being a lovely you ng girl, who was the age her son was when I last met with her. It fills me with overwhelming sadness to learn of her loss, and it is with great respect, to her, Justin their families and above all to Brock that I sign this petition, in the hope that something is done, and lives are saved as a result. RIP Brock. xx

      I travel on this road to visit my parents and it always worries me that I might not make it because of all the deaths on this road.

      On a daily basis I travel along Appin Road from Bulli to Campbelltown and back, and just within the past 24 hours alone (and the 3 times I've travelled along it), my car had aquaplaned more than 6 or 7 times.

      Also, the speed limit is too high. I can't even begin to scratch the surface of the experiences I've had with reckless drivers along that road.

      This road NEEDS to be fixed. It's a death-trap.
