A 20 mph zone for Safer Streets on Stamford Brook Road & Turnbull Road and surrounding residential area

We the undersigned petition the council to create a 20 mph zone, comprising all the residential streets leading off Stamford Brook Road & Turnbull Road, West Timperley. Install warning signs asking vehicles to slow down especially where children are likely to be walking or crossing.

I live on Stamford Brook Road, West Timperley where we have a big problem with vehicles driving dangerously fast on this and other residential streets in the area.

Please join me to ask TRAFFORD MBC to make this and all the residential streets that adjoin Stamford Brook Road and Turnbull Road into a 20 mph zone.

We are a residential area, with nearby schools and parks and open spaces. 30 mph seems very fast on our roads, but many drivers go faster than that. At speeds in excess of 30 mph a child will be lucky to survive a collision. At below 20 mph they would have a good chance of survival.

Children need to play out and shouldn't be restricted in their homes. Additional signage should be erected where children are often playing or crossing to make motorists aware.

There are a lot more cars using our roads. The new housing developments in the area does increase traffic even more.
