(1)          Speed Camera on Beaconsfield Road


We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to place a speed camera on Beaconsfield road to prevent dangerous driving.

There has been an increase of dangerous driving on Beaconsfield road. The road is currently 20mph but individuals will drive 30 - 40 mph. There has also been incidents of people going faster and appear to be racing down the road. There has also been some dangerous overtaking whilst residents attempt to park their car and cars screeching to stop at the traffic lights.

There is concern that there will be more car accidents, parked vehicles being hit and pedestrians and cyclists being injured.
