Residents draw to the attention of Council, about cars driving at speed down a quiet community street. Over the past few months, the road traffic driving at speed down Blackwood Rd is on the rise...from cars, motorbikes and utes. This street is a marked bicycle route, with young children, families and pets walking the street frequently. This has fast become a growing concern for the local residents as they feel it will only be a matter of time before something tragic happens. On 6/7 that fate became reality, when our small family pet being hit and killed by a heavy ute/vehicle driving at speed down what is normally a quiet, calm back street. This has to stop!!!
Your petitioners therefore request ...all drivers consider their surroundings, and just slow down. The local council install a speed detecting / monitoring device in the initial instance. Although this thought to be a challenge regarding reaching the speed limit. The best outcome would be to install 3-4 speed humps down Blackwood Rd to deter drivers from using this calm, family heavy backstreet as a speed strip in an attempt to prevent this fate for someone else’s family member.
