Help prevent an accident! Ottery St Mary Primary School Safety Barrier

This petition had 324 supporters

There's been a number of near misses at pick up time, with children running out of the bottom exit from the primary school straight onto the road. There is currently no barrier to stop them doing this.

Whilst we all encourage our kids to be traffic aware, we as grown ups should surely be doing all we can to protect them in case they forget to stop! 

I contacted Devon Highways early September to ask if they would be able to put up a safety barrier opposite the pedestrian exit from the school to try and prevent accidents (note to not affect vehicle access for fetes etc as these gates are closed normally). Please note the School Headmaster has agreed that a barrier can be put up in this place. 

There has been no action from Devon to date, so please help by signing this petition, and if you wish, calling Devon Highways about this, the number is 0345 155 1004, and the reference is ENQ171040118. 

There is already a barrier at the top exit from the school. Why not at the bottom?

Please sign this petition to try and get Devon Highways to make this exit safer for our kids before there is an accident. 

Thank you.
