An Abbots Langley resident has kickstarted a petition to combat speeding across the village.

Kristina Allison has launched a petition calling on Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) to tackle increasing levels and traffic which is both dangerous to drivers and pedestrians.

Although not isolated to, one road in question is Gallows Hill Lane, where residents believe it is only a matter of time before someone is seriously or fatally injured.

The petition details a number of potential road calming solutions, including a speed camera, pedestrian crossings, a speed limit reduction, road signage and width restrictions or speed humps.

Speaking to ABBOTSNEWS, Kristina said the petition has seen a lot of success so far with more than … residents rallying to sign the petition.

She said:

Kristina said she has also been working with the village’s county councillor to discuss potential measures that could be introduced.

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 from people who live or work in Hertfordshire and fulfils the necessary policy criteria, it will be considered by the appropriate council panel.”
