Ringway Road speed issue

Ringway Road speed issue

There is a speed issue on Ringway Road where in my time of living on this road there has been two cats run over from these extensive speeds. We call for a meaningful consultation with local residents to put in more effective traffic calming measures on Ringway Road. There needs to be additional and higher speed bumps to give an effect on the speeds of the cars as the 20MPH speed limit is ignored. I'm am very worried that one day a car will lose control and go into the front of someone's house or run a pedestrian over or some wildlife causing serious injuries. One of the residents of Ringway Road has actually had a car drive into her front porch and the car ended up upside down in her front garden. Their Husband was also nearly knocked over as well as their dog due to a car over taking a bus as the driver let him cross which is another reason the issue needs to be addressed. The motorbikes that pass down here are careless and swerve from lane to lane while doing "wheelies". There are currently 3 or 4 sets of speed bumps on this road which isn't enough and they really don't do anything. They are just small hills in the road. I would appreciate it it you would sign this petition even if you don't live on this road as it is a major problem for residents here.
Thanks,
Jamie Yearsley-Ward.
P.S. If you can share this with people you know and/or on social media that would be great.

Why is this important?

It is important as there could be some very serious injuries if a speeding car looses control and how it can not only put people walking at risk but the driver of the vehicle as well. This is also a worsening problem and when motor bikes drive past at speeds in the night it disturbs residents and this road should also be a motorbike free zone for that reason.

How it will be delivered

This will be submitted to many people who could help resolve the issue. Examples include,
the Manchester city council, the local Wythenshawe campaigner and Neighbourhood officers. We plan to have this handed to the council by the end of February but it all depends on how long it takes. it would be great and helpful if you publicise this to you friends, family and anyone helpful you may know.

Reasons for signing

  • Speeding on Ringway Road is now commonplace and needs to be curtailed
  • I have witnessed cars speeding along Ringway road at speeds in excess of 60 miles per hour, divers over take me when I drive appropriately. This needs to be addressed urgently

Hello!
The petition has been submitted as we have had paper petitions come through the letterbox from other people making the sum of 100 we need. It would really help if you don't stop telling people about this petition as it will remain open until the issue has been resolved and your signature will also be submitted the next time I email the council.
I would like to thank anybody who has signed and for you support and agreement that this issue has to be sorted. I will keep trying to resolve this issue the best I can.
Thanks again,
Jamie.
