Why this petition matters

Started by rachel jackson

Staunton drive, Edwinstowe drive and Danethorpe Vale are increasingly being used by speeding drivers who use these roads as a cut-through from Mansfield road to Edwards Lane and Perry Road to Valley Road. 

Cars have been damaged and sadly, within a short period of just two weeks, a cat was knocked over and left with serious injuries and mobility challenges. Then this week, another cat has been run over yet this time, sadly this cat did not survive.

This is not the first time that animals have been killed due to careless speeding drivers cutting through our estate. Endangered wildlife such as hedgehogs and much other wildlife such as squirrels and birds have also been victims of these careless drivers. All because there are no restrictions to warrant people to slow down when using our estate as a shortcut.

It's extremely worrying these events are happening and we're worried that it could be a child or adult next. Indeed, our roads are used by children and parents when walking morning and late afternoon to Seeley Infants School. Likewise, our streets also used to be safe for children to play out on, especially during the spring and summer months.

Now, it feels like they're not safe anymore and even motorists run the risk of collision with speeding drivers when pulling out of their driveways some mornings and evenings. This is in addition to having wing mirrors damaged and broken due to speeding drivers failing to navigate the narrow streets.

Please help us protect our children, animals, pets, wildlife, property by signing this petition. Your support will help us keep our estate and community safe and ensure speed control measures are put in place to prevent any more unnecessary loss of pets,  wildlife or damage to property and any harm to our children and residents.

Thank you for taking the time to sign our petition. Please do share it as much as possible so that we have enough signatures to make our community safe again.

Thank you for your time.
