Petition to Stewart Macdonald of East Dunbartonshire Council
Newdyke Road Traffic Calming Measures
Every resident living within the Newdyke Road / Hillhead area and surroundings will obviously have come across speeding drivers every night driving well over the speed limit up and down this road. We all know what we call them when you hear and see them speeding. It was only a matter of time before something happened and of course the night of 10th August 2017 - it happened. Poor 10 year old Matthew knocked down by a speeding driver on Newdyke Road.We hope he is ok and wish him a speedy recovery. This is the second child that has been knocked down on this road in the last 2 weeks. Now something needs to be done along this stretch of Newdyke Road.Its lucky Matthew is alive but someday it could happen again and it could be your child lying on that road next time. That Newdyke Road needs Traffic calming measures put in place and maybe some way of taking the parked cars off the road. There is a school along this road with a football pitch where a lot of kids normally play,so by having the Traffic calming measures in place can justify that your kids will arrive home in one piece. Speed bumps-Speed cameras- extra signs- Chicanes, anything to slow down drivers along this road. If you know this area and seen the evidence yourself,please sign the petition.If you have children or grandchildren who play around this area then get signing.The more signatures the more EDC will be pressurised into carrying these measures out. If I get enough signatures, I will personally go to EDC myself and fight to have these measures put in. Even though this is the main bus route from Harestanes to Glasgow,it may stop any measures getting put into place but if the buses also slow down for speed bumps it can prevent any accidents as well. We need this happen now before someone gets killed.

Aberdeen City Council: Get a speed camera on School Road
School Road in Seaton has been used as a rat run for many vehicles. Over the years. Residents have complained about speeding, HGVs are too big to use this narrow street. And we feel something needs to be done. If the council puts a speed camera up this could dramatically reduce speeding and make School Road safety for residents. And hopefully ban HGVs from using this road as its very narrow and can become gridlocked at the School Road/King Street roundabout and has an awkward turning point at the Golf Road/Urquhart Road junction.

Get Speed Cameras on the Humber Bridge
The Humber Bridge is a private road, with 50mph limits on it. However, there are drivers who do not stick to this limit, and often tailgate the drivers in front to make those cars increase their speed beyond 50mph. When there is an accident caused by poor driving, in which speed is often a factor, it may close 1 lane, if not both of them, going North or Southbound. This causes queues of traffic trying to get to work, or go home to their families after work, as they have to wait for emergency services and recovery vehicles to attend. Accidents may involve damage to the road surface and/or crash barriers, which in turn have to be repaired, causing more delays. The fact that there are speed limits posted over the Bridge, but are not currently monitored and enforced, it would seem the only way to ensure that the 50 limit is adhered to, is by placing cameras along the bridge. By signing this petition you are showing your support for road safety. The road is maintained by the Humber Bridge Board, this petition is to raise awareness that the people using the Bridge want to cross it in a safely manner. The Humber Bridge Board can then liase with Humberside Police and request the cameras be placed on the bridge.
