Oxfordshire County Council: Install a speed camera on Hadden Hill Road, Didcot


There is a dangerous stretch of the A4130 known as Hadden Hill Road which has played witness to three fatal accidents, four serious accidents and over 25 accidents that have caused minor injuries. All this in the last nine years. Some of these accidents have torn local families, friends and communities apart.

Five years ago the speed limit was cut from 50mph to 40mph. Since then the frequency of accidents has been reduced by 50%. While this is fantastic progress, it just is not enough. Accidents still happen, and will continue to happen unless something is done to ensure drivers are sticking to the enforced speed limit.

There are currently no preventative measures enforced along this stretch of road, and there are no plans to install any. You can help change this.

While the costs of setting up and maintaing a speed camera is very high, you cannot put a price on life.

Please sign this petition to show your support, but perhaps more importantly, share with as many people as possible. On your facebook, twitter, or simply by telling people about it.
