Change the so-called mini roundabouts at Stanningley Bottom
This petition had 2,246 supporters
The mini roundabouts at Stanningley Bottom are dangerous. Many people simply drive straight across at speed as if they are not there while others do treat them as mini roundabouts. This has given rise to much road rage and has also been the cause of many accidents and even more near misses since they were introduced. This is an area in which cyclists, school children and elderly pedestrians are particularly vulnerable as they try to use this 'shared space'.
To solve these problems, the mini roundabouts should be correctly marked as defined in the Highway Code. It would also be helpful to have 'rumble strips' on the approach to them and clear signage warning people that there are TWO mini roundabouts, not just one. Also helpful would be an electronic sign, showing people their current speed and fences alongside double yellow lines. Currently, it is not unusual to see vehicles, including large vans, parked on the double yellow lines in between the two mini roundabouts, increasing the risk, confusion and danger to other road users.
I would urge all who are concerned about the road layout to sign the petition and share as widely as possible on your social media please.
