Making Roads Safer in Laois
Residents of Portarlington road where driver killed 'living in fear' PORTARLINGTON KILMULLEN ROAD RESIDENTS WANT THE COUNCIL TO TAKE ACTION AND MAKE THEIR ROAD SAFERThe Residents of Kilmullen Rd R420 Co. Laois Surrounding Area and Road Users and for roads policing. This request is being sought due to a large number of road traffic accidents and most recently a fatality which occurred on August the 7th 2017. The An Garda Siochana and the other emergency services in Portarlington and Portlaoise are aware of these accidents as they are often called to the scene of same. However, many accidents also go unreported. The R420 is a very busy road with in excess of 4,700 vehicles using it per day. The road is populated with families and there are a lot of children who avail of a local bus service to schools. This necessitates children waiting at their gates and the bus pulling up along this road in the mornings and evening time when there is peak traffic. There are a number of bends along the roads and although there are a lot of road signage traffic frequently loses control at these bends. Almost every resident along the R420 from Kilmullen Bridge to Nolan's Cross have been affected by road traffic accidents outside of their property. There has been considerable damage done to walls, fences, hedges, signs and gardens. It is commonplace for us, the residents to have to ring the emergency services and to provide assistance to people involved in accidents along this stretch of road. I have personally been affected due to a 40-foot lorry veering off the road onto our property. My neighbour was involved in a two-car collision and sadly another neighbour was the first on the scene when a young man lost his life as a result of a crash at her gate. The residents believe many factors need to be addressed to make Kilmullen road safer. They point to the high traffic volumes, now estimated at 4,000 vehicles a day, as the road is the main route for traffic from the motorway westward. The road surface, dangerous double bends and even overgrown hedges are all believed to contribute to the dangerous stretch. The residents are seeking immediate action by Laois County Council starting with the installation of a speed van on the busy regional road, and solar speed flashing lights to warn cars of their speed, as well as a road surface test. They also want the bends in the road taken out and due to the high volume of cars on the regional road a day. Speed is a major contributing factor to many of these accidents. Therefore we the Residents of Kilmullen R420 Surrounding areas and Road Users are requesting a strong Garda presence on the R420 from Kilmullen Bridge to Nolan's Cross and policing to ensure that the speed limit is adhered to. We feel that this will prevent further accidents and road deaths. 1. The speed limit reduced to 60kph for the complete area of Kilmullen from Hopes Bridge to Lea Cross. 2. Widening the road. 3. Garda van to conduct speed check. 4. Re-surfacing the road- where worn 5. Sufficient lighting 6. Sufficient signage 7. CCTV 8. Solar speed flashing lights We have been advised by our local representatives that the more people that are concerned with Making Roads Safer in Laois the more likely the Laois County Council will respond to our concerns. I urge you to please sign this petition and ask a friend to do the same.

Make Helmet compulsory for Girls in Tricity Chandigarh
Everyday we come across various news of Girls' accidents due to not wearing helmets. I do not know why it is not compulsory in Chandigarh but in all other cities in India. I have always seen so many accidents of girls in tricity and now I am taking a step forward to implement this as everywhere in India it has been implemented. I am not sure about the reason why is it not compulsory in Chandigarh, but whatever the reason is; it should be mandatory for girls. Road accidents can happen to anyone. Its all about safety nothing else.Please sign this petition because it can save so many lives of our near and dear ones. I can not see anyone's daughter or sister or wife or mother being killed on road because of this not being implemented. Also this step can be a good move to check whether the girl has the driving license or not because anyone (whether a girl or boy) can go on road without having a valid driving license and if helmet is not compulsory, we see that girls are not at all stopped anywhere. It is a first step to ensure safety of all the precious daughters/mothers of India. I request Chandigarh Transport authority and High Court of Chandigarh to please implement this as soon as possible because these days, driving safely is the first precaution to be on road.

Change the layout to Copdock junction 55 Ipswich
Junction 55 copdock interchange is extremely dangerous in its current layout. The amount of accidents and delays caused almost everyday by this slip road is absurd. Usually, there are near misses between lorries & cars everyday, all due to the tail backs caused by the slip road. Commuters take their lives in their hands everyday driving past this slip road.

to stop the 376 bus coming down the beckton estate
The 376 bus route along the Beckton estate has been causing many problems some being a hazard to the children on the small estate who play outside and one problem that caused a near fatal incident . Many accidents have been caused by the buses going around the estate all for the bus to make one bus stop next to a school , when there is one bus stop already at the front of the estate which is literally a 5 minute walk to the school. Residents already deal with being next to a busy road let alone the noises of the buses constantly going around the estate. We dont want to have to worry about any more accidents happening or even having to worry about our cars being hit along the road that the buses travel down all because of one bus stop which really doesn't need to be there.
