Cars constantly speeding, doing 40 mph + when the roads are clear.

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The speed reduction for a residential area needs looking into on the Oxford road. It is dangerous and noisy. Bicycles and scooters are using the pavements instead of the roads. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or even killed. We need the speed reduces and/or speed humps.

  • Same dangerous issue from Rose Hill Parade shops/Littlemore Road up to Roundabout.

    Too much traffic for the area. Speeding, cutting quickly from side streets from Rose Hill/Newman Road, constant horn honking, speeding/screeching tyres, loud music & no respect for the residents on that section of roadway. One cannot be in/on own property gardening, or sitting quietly in own garden to enjoy.

    It's a problem that has worsened when side streets are being closed off from The Plain area, making more vehicles push further out of Oxford City. It's not fair for the outer City residents.

  • Unfortunately the heavy traffic and the amount of Buses that use this route means that most traffic calming features (road humps etc) would be unsuitable. However, the speed limit in this road has recently been reduced to 20mph and road marking changes have been made which should generally lower the speed of traffic.

    However, the enforcement of speed limits remains the responsibility of the Police
