Traffic calming measures for Newtown Road

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to put speed bumps in at Newtown Road, Hove. Newtown Road is a lovely, quiet, family-oriented street, yet traffic comes down it far too fast as a cut through from Old Shoreham Road. Drivers do not respect the 20mph speed limit. There have been a number of accidents on this road, and the bollards on the crossing with Fonthill Road are very often damaged. When the new developments across Fonthill Road are occupied through traffic will inevitably increase dramatically.

We feel it’s time apply to the Council for traffic calming measures before there’s a serious accident. This is a particular concern given this a street with many families and young children.
