Westminster Labour Councillors have called for measures to slow down speeding cars along Saltram Crescent, north Paddington, after more vehicle collisions, one of which resulted in a car being shunted on to the pavement after it was hit and could have caused injuries to pedestrians.
Saltram Crescent is often used by drivers as a short cut between Shirland Road and Fernhead Road and, with cars parked on both sides of this narrow road, visibility is not good as the road curves round. Residents have long called for safety measures to slow down traffic and Labour Councillors have supported residents’ call for action.
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said;
“These latest collisions show that Saltram Crescent needs action to slow down speeding cars in order to protect residents. The Council has so far failed to address this real problem and action is needed now before a more serious accident happens”
