To whom this may concern,
We would like you to consider a solution to a problem which is currently putting the communities’ lives at risk. We believe this problem has been occurring for far too long, and it is time to act. Many lives are at risk due to this oppressing issue.
Tragically, a few years ago, a child was hit by a speeding car while walking to school. Situations like these can lead to severe injuries and tragic events. With every passing day where we have no safe way to cross the road, we are at risk of situations like this happening again. We want to be proactive, not reactive. The solution to this would be – a pelican crossing.
Ever since we lost our lollipop man, Malcolm, we have been campaigning to make this road safer. We have been fighting this fight for years and we are determined to find a safe resolution for all involved.
We strongly believe a PELICAN crossing would be a great way to protect the wider community from the A53. All day everyday we sit inside our classroom hearing the immense volume of traffic speeding past. We asked members of our community to sign our petition for a pelican crossing. At this moment of time, we have got nearly 600 signatures. This shows it is not just our school that is passionate about it, it is the wider community. In addition to this, we have been working with the local PCSO’s as part of a Junior Cadet programme in school and they have said that they fully support this and they will do everything they can to help us achieve our goal.
Thank you for taking the time to listen to our arguments. We hope we can move forward and keep our community safe.
