Traffic calming petition for Ewell Road

Replied by rytheman on topic Traffic calming petition for Ewell Road
I think we all know that "traffic calming" has by no means proved to be a "silver bullet" - white vans and SUVs speed up to take speed humps (e.g. Station Road) while the humps just wreck the tyres ans suspension on family cars - big unnecessary bills for those unlucky enough not to have a company vehicle. Speed humps also add to air and noise pollution, and can have a detrimental effect on the structural stability on the houses by the humps. So it's not clear-cut.

Ewell Road may officially be in Long Ditton however it turns into Thorkhill Road which is Thames Ditton. More importantly I am sure many TD residents have or know of children who play football on the playing field which Ewell Road runs along.

Please support the petition to have traffic calming measures taken to make this road safer for all. Further details on the facebook page set up by local residents to raise awareness:
