Parents of Rumney Primary school want to petition to make our school road a safer place. We want our children to be able to cross the road and walk along the pavements without their lives at risk. Too many drivers are not paying attention to the road markings and traffic signals causing a danger to pedestrians and putting our children at risk.

We are petitioning to have a school crossing officer placed on the crossing outside Rumney Primary school. They will be able to assist parents and children to cross safely and ensure cars are stopping when there is a red light. These lights have been out of action on many occasions over the last few months which has made it difficult and dangerous for pedestrians to cross the road. With a crossing officer placed on the crossing, pedestrians would be able to cross the road safely.

We are also petitioning for a parking enforcement camera to be permanently placed on Wentloog road to stop drivers parking illegally and dangerously. There are many cars that park illegally on the pavement, zig zag lines, single yellow lines and double yellow lines every single day during the school drop off and pick up. These drivers are causing an obstruction on the road, making it difficult for traffic to flow freely, resulting in traffic jams along Wentloog road and placing children’s lives at risk when parking so close to the school. There have been many near misses of children being hit by these vehicles that decide to park illegally and dangerously outside the school.

We feel that without these systems put in place a child is going to be seriously hurt or worse! Please sign our petition to make Wentloog Road and our school to be a safer place for all pupils of Rumney Primary school and the community.
