Make Sewardstone Road safe before lives are lost!

On 1st May at 7am the residents of Albion terrace awoke to a horrific impact! An uninsured driver who was grossly exceeding the 30 mph limit lost control of his car and left the road, totally destroying 5 front gardens, sending bricks through resident's windows and demolishing the front of an OAP's home.

Incredibly on that occasion nobody was seriously hurt. A miracle considering that just minutes later, a busload of boot-sale goers disembarked from the 215 to attend the Picks Cottage boot sale. They picked their way through the wreckage astounded at their luck that the bus was running late that day.

We the undersigned, refuse to stand idly by as this accident black-spot continues to be neglected by the Highways agency. The stretch of Sewardstone road between Picks Cottage and Boardman Ave has two blind bends, numerous problematic junctions and a children's nursery situated nearby; for these reasons it is in desperate need of redesign and traffic calming measures.

Please sign this petition to prevent lives being lost.
