Fix my (dangerous) street

It's time to fix this problem before it kills someone.

Residents of Dane Valley have started to speak up regarding a dangerous junction that has come close to claiming the lives of a number of people.

We are calling for a mirror so positioned that someone coming out of Tenterden Way can actually see what is coming up the road before making a right hand turn. Rather than, as at present, make the right hand turn blindly and guessing you are not crossing in front of oncoming traffic.

You can sign the petition on the Kent County Council Website.

What happened to my mum's car

While I say "started" it's more like have renewed calls for KCC to sort it out. Back in July 2010 Rosemary (that's my mum) put a request on Fix My Street to see change after she and my sisters almost met their end at a known problem junction.

This request was promptly ignored.

This time, owever, it will not be ignored. When 1000 people sign the petition it will be debated by a full meeting of the council. Hard to ignore then, eh.

Sign the petition on the KCC Website.

The KCC councillors for Dane Park have a Member Highway Fund allocation that could be used for this purpose. Ask them what they are using theirs for?
