    Speeding traffic raises major concerns on road in Etwall

    By David Brown on November 18, 2014

    A road in Etwall is the target of a campaign to get the speed limit reduced from 40mph, owing to the heavy traffic that is seen along the road. The road in question is called Hilton Road and there are two schools in the immediate area.

    There are new sports facilities in the area as well, which locals say have caused an increase in traffic. This has led to further calls for the speed limit to drop from 40mph to 30mph.

    A local mum-of-three is behind the campaign and she has started a petition. To date this has 160 signatures and it is likely to get more. Joanne Jones, the mum in question, spoke of two accidents that have already occurred on the road.

    One of these saw a bus hit a student’s car, while the other was a drink-driving incident. It is feared that because so many children use the road to get to one of the nearby schools, it is only a matter of time before a child is hurt trying to cross the road.

    Joanne says the council have so far dismissed the idea of reducing the speed limit in the area. She is pushing to get at least 400 names on the petition in the hope this will attract more attention from the council.

    How does speeding traffic cause problems?

    When a car or other vehicle travels faster than it should do, the driver has less time to react to circumstances ahead of them. It doesn’t matter how familiar you are with a particular road, you never know if someone is about to cross the road or a child is about to step out without looking.

    It doesn’t matter who is at fault – what matters is that an accident could be prevented very often if the driver simply drove within the speed limit at all times. Remember this the next time you are behind the wheel.

    Have you been injured by a speeding car or other vehicle?

    If you have you’ll know how painful it can be. You’ll also realise the consequences can be dreadful for those who are injured. Sometimes it can result in fatalities.

    Make sure you call Accident Advice Helpline if you believe there is an opportunity to bring a no win, no fee claim against those who are possibly responsible for an accident.
