Traffic calming measures on Engleton Rd/Moseley Ave.

We the undersigned petition the Council to introduce traffic calming measures such as speed cameras and/or speed bumps on Engleton Road and Moseley Avenue.

Engleton Road and Moseley Avenue is a very busy main road towards the city centre, connecting Radford Road to Holyhead Road. It is a straight road for almost a mile, and as such attracts speeding vehicles and dangerous drivers, travelling in speeds up to 50mph. There have been numerous traffic collisions in the last 2 years, one particularly serious last year when police and ambulances had to attend.

This is a built-up residential area, with a lot of foot traffic, particularly around the shops at Barker Butts junction. The road is also home to Moseley Primary School. As such, it is only a matter of time before there is a fatality as a result of reckless driving. The speeding vehicles are also the cause of noise pollution with drivers revving their vehicles unnecessarily, causing distress to local residents.
