Residents draw to the attention of motorists, both cars and bikes, that continually break the law by means of excessive speed, running red lights and noise pollution! This petition relates to Wynnum Road between Tingal Road, Wynnum, and Manly Road, Tingalpa. There is on one hand the Harley and Suzuki motorcycles that produce excessive noise pollution at most hours of the day, along with every other mode of motorised transport running red lights and exceeding the speed limit. The Queensland Police Service has been notified of these issues, however their staff are unable to provide a consistent solution. The behaviours outlined above have caused accidents where residents' lives have been put at risk after a vehicle has proceeded past the property boundary and into private property. Some residents in general do not feel safe walking the streets and where there is an increased activity of parents with young children, as well as cyclists of all ages, they deserve to enjoy an environment free from noise pollution and inconsiderate motorists. The above places everybody In a state at which their health and safety is at a high level.

Petitioners therefore request that a number of monitoring devices be erected. Devices to be erected at key locations such as intersections and inconspicuous locations:

 - fixed red light camera

- fixed speed camera devices to be erected in inconspicuous locations

- fixed speed camera

- noise camera.

The above devices must be of a fixed, long-term nature.
