Petition Tag - traffic lights
National charity Living Streets is calling plans to reduce pedestrian crossing time in London to be stopped - amidst safety fears for pedestrians.
As part of its plans to smooth traffic flow across the capital, Transport for London (TfL) has been investigating changing signalised pedestrian crossings, including reducing pedestrian crossing time.
Living Streets is concerned about any reduction in pedestrian crossing times. Fear of traffic and the tortuous amounts of time it can take to cross some roads are real barriers to people walking more short journeys, in particular older people and those with disabilities.
We want the Mayor to put an end to initiatives that involve reducing pedestrian crossing time.
There is often a mobile police camera unit situated at the traffic lights at the entrance to Heron Drive on Parlaunt Road, Langley, Slough.
This camera parks but no speed camera warning signs are displayed on Parlaunt Road.
As the William Floyd Parkway has seen more and more conjestion and traffic, drivers have decided to take alternate routes to by-pass traffic lights. It has become an increasing problem with development in the surrounding area. For example; the new Head Start opening, the opening of Home Depot, and extra traffic lights have added to the already serious problem. Numorous accidents have happened in our residential neighborhood just off of William Floyd Parkway.
Our main fear is that our children are at risk of being the fatality that will bring attention to this issue of speeding vehicles on residential streets. So before that happens a solution must be found.
Farndon village residents have to negotiate the A46 when entering or leaving the village. This trunk road is extremely busy and at times perilous. We believe that there needs to be traffic lights at Farndon crossroads to alleviate the risk and prevent any further accidents and subsequent loss of life.
