Speed control required

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

There are over 25 children living on Sweetman's Rd, approx half are under 10. The children are frequently in ad out of each other's houses, crossing back and forth between parked cars and playing outside. Cars swoop around the corner from Yarnells Hill and Raleigh Park Road and travel too fast on Sweetman's Rd to stop in time to avoid hitting a child. We would like to request line painting to stop parking too close the junction on either end obscuring a driver's view of the road and that speed bumps are introduced to slow traffic on Sweetman's Rd.

  • Thank you for your report. We have checked the personal injury accident history and can confirm that there have been no such accidents at this location wiythin the last five year period, I regret that Oxfordshire County Council does not have the available funding for the the installation of either formal waiting restrictions (yellow lines) or traffic calming measures at this time.
