In the summer of 2012, Wickham Road in Brockley was resurfaced & the speed humps lowered, with a resulting increase in traffic speed. Wickham Road is a 20 mph zone, so speed restrictions should be enforced by the road layout, whether through road humps or other measures.
5 reasons the increase in traffic speed is BAD:
> It is now more dangerous for pedestrians, especially the elderly and children, as well as cyclists;
> There is an increased risk of traffic accidents;
> Noise pollution has increased;
> Air pollution has increased;
> The resulting higher traffic volume makes the neighbourhood less desirable.
