Petition on speeding & dangerous driving

The roll out of 20mph zones might have slowed down the average speed of sensible drivers, but it does nothing to stop the reckless drivers who tear around our street. This culture of lawless and reckless driving needs to be tackled.

The Department of Transport calculates the cost of each fatal accident at over £2 million, and each serious injury accident on our roads at around a quarter of a million. With the human and financial costs of accidents being so high, there must surely be an economic case for funding a permanent road traffic office to patrol Calderdale’s highways, for equipping local Police officers with mobile speed guns and empowering local communities to request speed cameras are installed.


Therefore we the undersigned call on Calderdale Council, the Government and West Yorkshire Police to:

- Provide funding for a dedicated road traffic officer in Calderdale.
- Funding for local neighbourhood policing team officers to be equipped with mobile speed guns.
- Give local communities the power to request a speed camera is installed.
