Ian King started this petition to Kirklees Council and

Whitley Road has excessive hourly traffic peak periods, with the majority of these vehicles exceed the stated speed limit by 20 percent or more (eg faster than 36 mph in a 30 mph zone)

Speed is a major factor in our Village. A study of country single-carriageway country roads estimated that a 10% increase in average speed results in a 30% increase in the possibility of fatal and serious crashes. The most common crash types on country roads are collisions at intersections and concealed entrances, head-on collisions and running off the road  these are all related to excessive speed.

The foot- ways are poorly maintained, we have street lighting that do not work during this winter period pedestrians, children and ramblers have to walk on the carriage way and take there lives into their own hands when doing so. Vehicle speeds make this a very dangerous matter. We want Kirklee's Council and West Yorkshire Police to protect our community from Speeding in our Village.
