Speeding cars a danger to me and my young children

There are no pavements on this lane so we need to walk along the side of the road to go anywhere without driving. Due to the nature of the right turn onto this lane from the B4009, which is a blind turn to approaching traffic on the B4009 after only a few hundred feet, people accelerate strongly across the oncoming lane and don’t slow down as they pass the houses. My child was nearly run over due to a car driving at >40mph, which is not the first occurrence! This road should be a 5mph zone and consider making it one-way from Britwell Hill to the B4009. Very dangerous to walkers, cyclists and above all residents!

Unfortunately 5mph is not a speed limit that we work with. If there are issues with speeding please report this to the non emergency police on 101. Regards

Is there any follow up response to this or do I need to raise a new issue?
