As a resident at Woodlea Cottages for the last two years, I have seen a number of accidents on the Clemsfold stretch of the A281. It is a national speed limit road and combining this with the homes, local businesses and the Clemsfold roundabout, the safety of local people and road users is at stake. Just today, I witnessed a serious accident at the roundabout involving a motorcyclist. We have previously seen tyre tracks going over the roundabout, as people have not slowed down enough in time. Surrounding areas have much slower speed limits, i.e. Ockley (30 mph), Bucks Green (30 mph).

There needs to be measures put in place to reduce the speed of road users coming through this stretch from both directions, i.e. speed cameras or speed humps. If the speed is reduced, then people will be safer. If this is ignored, then more people's lives are at risk. With the fact that slow-moving tractors are pulling in and out at Oakes Bros, combined with the care home being there, the stakes are high. I have also witnessed loose cows and sheep in the fields of Clemsfold farm - if they got onto the road then this could also cause a serious accident with the speed that people travel at through Clemsfold. 

It is devastating to see so many accidents on the road, particularly when you know that they could be prevented if due diligence is paid. Let's join together to make the area safer for both people and animals.

I suggest we propose a speed limit of 40mph through this section, to be reinforced with speed cameras, or an average speed check through this stretch. I am sure that I am not the only person who feels that the road is too fast. By signing this petition, you are showing your support, to help get our voice heard. I will be taking the results of this petition to Jeremy Quin and Horsham council for action.
