Hello, We are David and Laura Ashworth. We are parents of children attending Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School, Huddersfield and are concerned about the high level of reported traffic incidents around the school including speeding, crashes and near misses of children coming and going from the school.

These incidents are not only restricted to parents during school drop off and pickup times but also people using the area as a through way at certain times of the day.

Several of these incidents are reported to the local police but are rarely followed up on as cars are usually going too fast to correctly identify or incidents are narrowly avoided.

We are requesting traffic calming measures be implemented and enforced in the area surrounding Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School such as a lower speed limit and speed bumps for the safety and protection of children, parents and residents in the area. This is due to the high level of incidents involving vehicles driving unsafely and at high speed on Birch Road and Caldercliffe road, Huddersfield. The speed limit surrounding Berry Brow School is currently set at 30mph, however vehicles often exceed this, travelling in excess of 40mph in highly congested and pedestrian heavy areas.

Please take the time to support our cause as the police will only take action if there is an actual incident, by this point it will be far too late as a child, parent or resident could be seriously injured or even killed and families could be irreprably destroyed.

EVERY SIGNATURE COUNTS!

Thank you.
