(1)      Road Safety on Fox Way, North Portslade- Councillor Atkinson

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to urgently review the problem of road safety and speeding vehicles on Fox Way in North Portslade. In particular, along the stretch of road between Foredown Rd and Hamilton Close. This review should include what road safety and traffic calming measures could be introduced to avoid serious incidents and accidents for other road users and pedestrians alike.

This stretch of road has become more and more dangerous as the years have worn on. Motorists regularly go way over the speed limit and there will undoubtedly be more serious accidents if action isn't taken to calm the traffic in some way.
