DANGEROUS ROAD: St Albans resident sets up petition to stop fatal crashes 

 Published on: 17th March 2020   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A local St Albans resident, Victoria Edwards, took to social media to encourage people to sign her petition to stop fatal crashes around the Park Street roundabout area.

The petition was created to combat car accidents following a number of fatalities. 

Other residents posted on social media calling for the roundabout to be traffic light controlled, which encouraged Vicky to create the petition.

A previous petition was made in April 2019 but only received 50 signatures. 

A number of accidents come from crashes to the rear of cars or due to people not using the inside and outside lanes correctly.

Other people complained that the roads leading up to the roundabouts like the A414, were too fast and needed tighter speed restrictions.

The petition was met by some criticism who believed that traffic lights were not going to solve the issue at hand, but it was due to poor drivers being the result of the high number of crashes.

The petition is available to view at ‘Install Traffic Lights at the Park Street Roundabout.
