  • Make our school crossing safer for everyone
    Following a recent accident and many near misses, we urgently need changes to make the crossing outside Martin Primary School, East Finchley safer for all users. A child and parent were hit and injured by a car on the crossing outside Martin Primary School on the High Road (A1000), East Finchley on Monday 4 February. There have been two more near misses in the past week, when drivers failed to stop at the red light as families were crossing. These are the latest in a series of collisions and near misses around that crossing. It is essential that children are able to cross the road safely on their way to and from school. And it is not just our children who need a safer crossing: this crossing is also widely used by the local community as a key route to and from the library, bus stops, allotments, churches and local shops. We urgently need a thorough review of safety outside Martin Primary School, including the junctions with surrounding roads and the High Road and a commitment to implement changes to improve safety. The Walksafe campaign in 2012 urged the Council to make changes to the crossing to improve the safety of walking routes to the school including these traffic lights. Many improvements were made then, but need for changes to the traffic lights was to be kept under review. That review is now due. Much has changed since 2012: Martin Primary School now has almost 50% more pupils, the school building and field are now more heavily used by community groups in evenings and weekends; and the Archer Academy is now fully established, bringing extra school children into the area. We need a new transport study to understand how the road works now and swift implementation of changes to improve safety. This petition has been started by a group of parents and East Finchley residents. We hope all our neighbours in East Finchley and everyone who visits the area will support this. For more information or to help with this campaign, please email SafeCrossingN2@gmail.com If you have witnessed dangerous driving at this crossing, please report it to the police via: https://www.met.police.uk/ro/report/rti/report-a-road-traffic-incident/

  • Increase pedestrian and cyclist safely on the A38 footpath between Lee Mill and Ivybridge, Devon
    There have been fatal collisions between pedestrians and vehicles on this particular stretch of road in the past. It is a regularly used footpath for both pedestrians, cyclists and school children. The footpath is extremely narrow in places. There are particular areas of the footpath which are extremely close to fast moving traffic (70mph) with no protective barrier should cars diverge off the road or bicycles slip into oncoming traffic. The slip road from Lee Mill onto the A38 in the Exeter direction is of particular concern as if traffic is unable to filter onto the often heavily congested A38 there is a risk they will drive onto the pedestrian footpath as there is no protective barrier in situ. The footpath is pitch black at night time making it unsafe for pedestrian walking. This stretch of road has a bus stop which requires passengers to disembark along it.

  • Pedestrian Crossing Sullivan Road Brighton HIll
    The road is very busy particularly in the area of the Brighton Hill Centre. The sight lines are poor with stationary buses and a blind corner. Cars regularly exceed the speed limit. There are high numbers of vulnerable people crossing the road. Elderly and unwell people cross to access medical facilities, children and young people cross to access two local schools and there is significant footfall to local shops. Often the only way to cross is to rely on the goodwill of drivers. When buses are stationary cars cannot see pedestrians crossing and vis-versa. Do not wait until a child is injured or worse before improving road safety here.

  • 20mph zone for Cromer Road School
    This is important for the safety of pupils attending Cromer Road School, and for parents, staff and local residents. We consider that these measures are urgently required in order to protect the safety of our children. A resident’s cat lost its leg after being hit by a speeding vehicle on Shaftesbury Avenue. It does not bear thinking about this happening to a small child, and there have recently been some near misses along Cromer Road after school. There is also a problem with Lorries persistently getting stuck on the narrow roads, causing log-jams and damaging parked vehicles. The Cromer Road one-way system includes: Cromer Road, Shaftesbury Avenue and Bulwer Road (to the east of Plantagenet Road), New Barnet, EN5

  • Apply Congestion/Pollution Charges to Blackcab-users
    60% of all lethal car NOx in London is emitted by blackcabs. Blackcabs are up to 30 times more polluting than equivalent private cars! [1] As even ambulances have to pay the mayor's pollution charge, then really toxic black cabs should not be exempted from paying it. They are a public health emergency on our streets. 40% of all cars in central London are blackcabs. [2] Yet they only carry 1% of all trips in London. [3] They are the most inefficient use of precious road-space. Empty London blackcabs drive 230 million miles every year, looking for paying customers. [4] Emergency vehicles and people trying to get to work, school & shops are blocked daily by black cab jams, yet the mayor allows cabbies to drive empty in bus lanes for free. The Mayor must impose congestion and pollution charges on London’s largest source of vehicular pollution and congestion. New York has imposed a congestion charge on cab-users rather than cabbies and that is what we want – a £5 per trip congestion charge for all cab-users. Blackcab pollution is carcinogenic and damages the lungs of our kids for life. Even the new Electric Cabs emit 70% of the particulates of non-electric cabs. Blackcabs are not public-transport. They are expensive privately chauffeured vehicles for hire. For the sake of the lives of those using buses, walking and cycling, we need to radically reduce unnecessary blackcab usage in London. We need cleaner and far fewer cabs. Those with disabilities would be exempted from the cabuser congestion charge, which we also want applied to minicab users. This petition is hosted by Stop Killing Cyclists. Please sign & share widely on your social media. Yes We Can! Thank you! ___ Notes: 1. Stat on blackcabs emitting up to 30 times more lethal NOx than equivalent car & 60% of all car NOx in London is from the Independent: https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/black-cabs-taxis-air-pollution-london-research-true-icct-a8688141.html 2.

  • Promote British lorry drivers.
    Our British lorry drivers are dwindling at an alarming rate and the shortage is becoming a national concern. Lorries are the life blood of the countries demand for consumption. The transport of goods is vital for the survival of all of us. We're all responsible for this as we're all consumers. In fact the only reason for lorries on our roads is us... All of us. With a career change I am now a dry powder tanker driver. I financed this myself which cost thousands. And was having a discussion with a family Man who was not happy in his present career. I suggested to him, why not an HGV driver. His reply was an anxious "I would love that, but however, I have neither time or the finances to do this". I spoke with a mother of a school leaver who suggested they had not heard or thought of this option. We desperately need to get the backing of the government, industry and hauliers to promote the finance, career promotion and training of new British HGV drivers.

  • Extend Arriva Bus Route 31 to Beaconsfield
    Congestion between Beaconsfield and Penn is worsening and this large gap in the market needs to be filled. On such a busy road like the B474 it is surprising there isn't a regular service bus route.

  • Review preparations for dealing with a nuclear convoy accident in Cumbria
    Nuclear warheads are regularly transported in convoys on public roads to and from the atomic weapon factories at Aldermaston and Burghfield, and RNAD Coulport on Loch Long, where the weapons are stored and loaded onto Trident submarines. A nuclear warhead contains radioactive material and high explosive and this poses serious questions about public safety. The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 requires Category 1 Responders (including Local Authorities) to conduct a risk assessment of potential threats and to keep the public informed. According to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) document, Local Authority and Emergency Services Information (LAESI) Edition 10, if there was a serious accident the MoD would look after the nuclear weapon, but Local Authorities, Emergency Services and the Health Service would be responsible for potentially contaminated casualties, evacuating people nearby and advising many more to stay indoors. We want Cumbria County Council to openly review how prepared the civil authorities are and inform the public about their findings. Then the people of Cumbria can decide whether this transport poses an unacceptable risk.
