Councillor Roger Harmer and Penny Wagg have launched a petition for average speed cameras to be installed on Fox Hollies Road.
Fox Hollies Road has suffered a large number of accidents, most recently a particularly tragic collision on Saturday 5th June. While the police speed camera vans visit regularly, they are only there for a limited time and speeding occurs 24 hours a day. It is time for permanent speed cameras, ideally the average speed cameras that have been effective in reducing speeding on the Coventry Road.
Average Speed Cameras were introduced as a pilot in 2016. As the pilot was a success, it is high time they were rolled out to other locations that need them, such as Fox Hollies Road. The Labour-controlled City Council and the Birmingham Road Safety Partnership (which includes the Police and the Fire Service) have waited too long to do this and need to act now. By signing this petition, you will put pressure on them to make this happen.
We the undersigned call on Birmingham City Council and the Birmingham Road Safety Partnership to tackle the high number of speed related accidents on the Fox Hollies Road in Acocks Green and Hall Green, by installing average speed cameras:
Whether you've already signed up to the campaign or aren't ready just yet, you can still help encourage other people to sign up.
