SLOW DOWN: Watford MP backs petition to tackle speeding in Abbots Langley

 Published on: 7th September 2022   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

Dean Russell, MP for Watford, has backed a petition to tackle speeding in Abbots Langley.

The MP recently met with local resident Kristina Allison to discuss her petition for action on speeding drivers on Gallows Hill Lane and the wider Abbots Langley area.

He said: “Kristina has done a great job of engaging with local residents to raise the need for greater speed restrictions for the road.

“It is clear she has the support of many of her neighbours. In fact, even whilst we were speaking, we witnessed several cars speeding along the road.”

The petition claims infrequent police speed checks have had “little to no impact on drivers passing through the village” and is calling for Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) to take action.

A spokesperson for HCC said: “We welcome the views of our residents and petitions are one way that people can get in touch. If the petition receives enough signatures and fulfills the necessary policy criteria, it will be considered by the appropriate council panel.”
