David Burn started this petition to Cumbria County Council

Act now to protect your children. High Hill needs action to reduce traffic speed before someone is badly hurt or even killed.

Despite clear evidence that many drivers significantly exceed the speed limit at High Hill, there is nothing in place to encourage drivers to slow their speed. Cumbria County Council refuses to take action.

Drivers’ speed varies hugely across the year, increasing sharply in the dark winter months. This poses life-threatening risks to all pedestrians including the many children at Keswick School.

The greater the speed, the more likely the chance of a more serious accident, or even a fatality.

With your help, it doesn’t have to be like this.

Speed indication devices show a driver’s speed. They do not keep any individual details about passing traffic. They just encourage drivers to slow down, and that save lives.

A car travelling at 40 mph will kill 9 out of 10 pedestrians. Slow that car to 30 mph and this falls to about half of pedestrians.

Join the Town Council and add your name to this petition to call on Cumbria County Council to install a speed indication device now.
