Prevent a death, stop speeding

This petition had 86 supporters

The speed of vehicles through Ellesmere Port is mostly, excessive, with little care for residents or road safety. 

Many families enjoy Ellesmere Port and the wide array of local amenities, but the thought of a child stepping out into the road, would be one of certain injury as someone speed over the (already installed) speed bumps at 50mph+ !

We would like our local Cheshire Council and police team to look into alternative traffic calming measures as a matter of urgency. 


Recent changes have seen residential roads speed limits reduced to 20mph, which have proven ineffective, with motorists continuing to breach speed limits excessively.

In 1 hour alone, over 59 motorists were caught exceeding the speed limit.*

The proposal is for local authorities to review current road layouts and install effective chicanes to reduce the amount of straight, un-obstructed, road. 


*Catching speeding motorists is a detection deterrent, not preventative, and will not stop an accident, or death, from happening.
