Appalling speed

Reported anonymously at 14:23, Mon 17 May 2010

Sent to Wiltshire Council 1 minute later

I live at the bottom of Firs Road. I have three children- 8,7 and 3 years old. I live well within a 30mph limit and cars are routinely travelling past my house at easily double this speed. There is a park on the other side of the road and if my children were to be hit by a car trevelling at the speeds I witness everyday they would be instantly dead. It is sickening to note the frequency of this terrifying wrecklessness. I would like to request road calming or ideally a traffic camera to put an instant stop to this dreadful practice before a small child is killed. Please, please help.

  • The Council have no record of any previous application for traffic calming in this area- though in speaking to residents I understand that it has been raised many times in recent years. I have been told that even if successful (which is unlikely), we will be waiting approx. 3 years to get the matter resolved.
