Speed enforcement put in place for safety/prevention in Toddington, Bedfordshire

Petition Details

Toddington is a bypass village set off of junction 12 on the M1. The traffic flow through the village can be busy with large and small vehicles passing through. A lot of vehicles ignore the 30 mph speed restrictions in place which cause it to be significantly dangerous and noisy for residents.

Additional Information

My main aim is for the village to have speed enforcements put in place for the safety of residents in the village and particularly for residents including young children living or walking along the main road through the village. Although the village is a 30mph road, this is ignored through out the day and night. Enforcing the speed will not only help prevent accidents or fatality’s but will help with the noise of vehicles with noisy adapted engines. The noise disrupts villagers day and night.

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

This is a matter for Central Bedfordshire Council, not the UK Parliament or Government.

You could start a petition on the Central Bedfordshire Council website calling for traffic calming measures such as speed bumps or cameras to be installed in Toddington, if that is something you'd like to see happen. You can find out more about how to do this here: www.centralbedfordshire.gov.uk/info/27/about_your_council/238/how_to_get_involved_in_council_decisions_-_make_your_voice_heard/5.

You might also like to contact your local MP and ask them to speak to the Council on your behalf. You can find your MP's contact details by entering your post code here: members.parliament.uk/FindYourMP
