Speed danger

I am concerned about the excessive speed of traffic in Kitchener Road, particularly between North Lake Road and Norma Road, as this is a built-up area and the speed limit is 50km/h, which is often flouted.

From 7.30am to 8.15am, children are walking or riding to Booragoon Primary School at the east end of Kitchener Road.

A speeding car would only have to lose control and mount the footpath or children crossing the road and most likely we would have a tragedy on our hands.

I have written to and spoken to local Members, our local council members and have written to the local Police as well as the RAC management, but all in vain.

Could this letter be published so that these people attempt to solve this problem.
