Bradshaw Glen is now districted into the Arnold Mill District which is approxim. 9 miles from the subdividion to Arnold Mill School. Bradshaw Glen is 1.5 miles to Hickory Flat School.
Buses from Arnold Mill would have to pass buses going to Hickory Flat to make pick ups at Bradshaw Glen subdivision.
The A1307 between the A11 and Haverhill (just ten miles) has seen over 16 deaths, 31 Serious Accidents and 99 Slight Injury Accidents in the last five years and since March this year six people (three children) have lost their lives on the road. There are 10 changes of speed limit in 6 miles, several applicable for one third of a mile or less.
We are told that ‘most’ of the fatalities on the A1307 are not related to excessive speed but we believe that if speed limits were reduced then this would have a positive effect. We believe – and we hope that you agree – that this road needs ‘calming’ in the way that only a lower and properly-enforced speed limit can achieve.
The peak period vehicle interval is 1.8 seconds, making this a very difficult road to access at these times of day, however people are still expected to cross the road (up to three lanes of traffic) in the dark with traffic travelling at 60mph just to catch a bus. Two children have lost their lives crossing the road in the last two years.
Vehicles from the villages have to risk their lives to exit their own villages and a roundabout to alleviate these problems and save lives was rejected due to congestion issues related to the high volume of traffic on the road – they just dropped the issue and left residents with the problem. Surprisingly Just four years later Cambridgeshire County Council stated that the road could accommodate an additional 250 lorries per day on the road from a large distribution centre... putting vehicles ahead of people.
Considerable housing and industrial development will continue at Haverhill, inevitably creating even more commuter and HGV traffic on the A1307 but no plans are in place to accommodate it and improvements will inevitably have to come from road safety budgets which mean people have to lose their lives first and this is TOTALLY unacceptable.
We want Cambridgeshire County Council to take immediate action, to reduce speed limits immediately and to make representations to the government for funding to put long term improvements into place.
West Kingsdown has had a very popular bus service scrapped by the conservative party in 2002 leaving those elderly and disabled expected to pay out full fare on other means of transport, even though they have half fare passes and free passes.
Without the popular service the elderly and disabled are expected to travel a minimum of 6 miles for a pulbic service. The Conservatives are the problem here as they all use cars and they say everyone can walk 6 miles. They just sit on their backsides all day and do nothing
The aim of this petition is to reduce the speed limit on the A6 outside St. Elizabeth's School & the Mill View housing area.
Currently the speed limit is 50 miles per hour outside this school and built up area.
Children as young as 4 years old are walking on a very narrow pavement to and from school - no more than 3 feet from speeding lorries and cars.
The speed limit is 25 miles an hour from NMMC till you leave Fort Kent. I have clocked 10 ton trucks going approximately 38-42 miles per hour.
This is a high pedestrian and children area. This is the normal speed not a few individual trucks or companies.
I am trying to prevent a tragedy before it occurs.
Klien School District will not provide bus services to Windrose and SpringBrook Subdivisionand.
In a news letter sent home with our kids on friday 08-18-06, it was stated that the school can not make the decision, They say we have to live 2 miles or more away from the school. We know the school can't make the decision, but the KISD can make the dicision to do school buses in Windrose and Springbrook and the other effected subdivision.
WE called State Representive Peggy Hamric's office (District 126) they said the state does not provide funding for busses within 2 miles radius of the school, but that the district could provide transportation, Kisd wanted to provide services for us they could. I think the district is trying to save money at our childrens expense. TC Jester is in the works for being opened all the tha thru to 2920. This is going to make TC Jester extremely busy, for everybody taking short cuts thru our neighborhoods because the major rodes around us are to conjested. Many years ago, when Benfer was opened KISD did not provide busses to the subdivision within a 2 mile radius. the home owners banned together and started a petition causing KISD to rethink there decision on bussing for Benfer, they know have bus service for there kids in less than a 2 mile redius of the school. We are now asking for the same considerations in Our neighborhoods for our kids.
There is nothing barring the district from providing busses if they chose to. We have 30 sex offenders in our zip code area, We have children who must walk down 2 major roads, one being Alvin A Klien and the other being T.C. Jester. These roads are very busy now, We get alot of traffice from Kuyendahl becouse it is so busy, they come down Alvin A Klien and cut thru Windrose for a short cut to miss traffic. There are too many children to put at risk to walk or ride bikes. Our subdivision is very spread out.
We pay taxes to our schools. We are asking for school bus service for the windrose and surrounding subdivision that will be going to the new school of Benignus in the Windrose subdivision. Thank you.

There are 3 cities meeting within 2 miles on one road. County Road 17. They are Excelsior, Shorewood and Chanhassen.
This road will be extending for several miles to become a connecting road to a new Highway 212. The Speed limits on this road are simply illogical. Toward the south side of the road where the road has a median and turning lanes it is 45 miles per hour. To the North side it rapidly changes from 50 mph down to 45 mph down to 30 mph entering another highway called Highway 7.
Where Excelsior is there are many homes that are close together and has driveways to what was for many years a low traffic road. Now that this highway is coming in the travelers are driving on it like it is a highway even though it is at Lake Lucy Road and Carver Beach Road only two lanes with poor visual sightways for people seeing it from the cross streets.
They are easily in a blind spot unless they drive over a crosswalk area for walkers and bicyclists to also use so they end up partially into the intersection in order to see easily cars on the main road. I avoided a 5 car collision by about about one foot of out car. Experience with this intersection I am afraid to even cross it when the coast is clear as some car might come bounding down it at 70 miles per hour.
There are several residential streets and driveways in that area like in Excelsior though fewer. The County upgraded a Police Officer to a more expensive car to give tickets. But I see the need is greater for putting a traffic light at either Lake Lucy Road or Carver Beach Road to allow for safe entrance and exit out of the road for drivers including many who have children they need to take back and forth to school.
Haywood School in Sherwood, Nottingham will close unless parents and residents of Sherwood do something about it now.
We need you to support the education authority's alternative plan to re-build the school - if you don't Haywood will close.
Do you want your children to be able to walk safely to a school on your doorstep or have to travel miles out of the area?
Do you want £2 million pounds a year taken out of the local economy?
Do you want businesses to suffer, house prices to fall?
We need to rebuild our local school NOT lose it!

*Wal-Mart is planning to upgrade its Miles City location to a Supercenter, which adds groceries to its product line.
*The population of greater Miles City is comprised of roughly 11,000 persons and is forecast to contract due to out-migration during the next ten years.
*There are already three large grocery stores currently serving the greater Miles City area.
*Therefore, the addition of a Wal-Mart Supercenter to our market would likely decrease the market share of each of the existing grocery stores to critical levels and would put at least one regional grocery store out-of-business.
*When Wal-Mart moved its discount store to Miles City, several locally-owned independent retail stores were closed within months as a result of Wal-Mart's predatory pricing.
*Wal-Mart is the world's largest retailer and second-largest corporation with annual revenue exceeding $245 billion, which equals the gross domestic product of five northern European nations.
*Wal-Mart controls 25-30% of the sales of consumer products in all categories.
*On average, Wal-Mart sales clerks earn $13,861 per year. The poverty line in the U.S. is $14,630 for a family of three.
*Wal-Mart is being sued by 1.6 million former female employees for systematically denying women equal pay and opportunities for promotion.
*Wal-Mart purchased $12 billion worth of Chinese goods in 2002, representing 10% of all U.S. imports from China.
*For each Wal-Mart employee hired in Miles City, it is estimated that seven jobs are lost from locally-owned businesses.
In 2002, Natick instituted a $250 per student school bus fee for elementary and middle school children living less than 2 miles from school. Those living beyong 2 miles of their school pay nothing for bus fees. As a result, nearly 60% of Natick families will pay no bus fees when their children begin middle school, and 25% will never pay bus fees. At the same time the 40% of Natick families living within 2 miles of both their elementary and middle schools are forced to buy bus fees for this entire time. At this same time, in 2003 the Natick School Department had a budgetary surplus, which it is directing toward eliminating this unfair burden on Natick families.
Traffic on Hillendale Drive in Big Bear City has been an on going issue. This street is currently not marked with any type of speed limit signs and many vehicles speed up and down the street at 50 miles per hour. Residency in this neighborhood has grown and the school bus stops have recently been moved to the corner of Robinhood and Hillendale.
The speed limit in this neighborhood is 25 miles per hour. The residents of this community need to insure our kids are safe and that the speed limits are posted and followed.
Buckshoal Road is a rural country road that starts at it's intersection with Highway 58, in Halifax County, and ends at Arron's Creek where it crosses the county line into Mecklenburg County. This road has had a history of suto accidents, some resulting in death. Speed seems to be the major factor in all the acidents that have occurred on the Road. Many people use this road to attend church, or communte to work. Farmers use this road extensively, child play near this road daily. Bicyclists and horesback riders also use this road. We the undersigned formally request that speed limit be restricted and enforced to 35 miles an hour on the complete route of the road. This is a safe speed for this dangerous and winding road.
I Adam J. Smith am only 14. I care about current events and what is going on in the world. I just watched an Earth Day video stating that the required gas milage on a car is only 20 miles per-gallon. We have the technoligy to create cars that get 100 miles per gallon but we only average 27.4 miles.
If we could just raise the minimum requirement of milage per gallon we can stop using a lot of foreign fuel. We could save 1/4 of what we spend on gas if car companys would only raise the milage to 40 gallons per mile.
This petition has been established for the following reasons. The Yukon Quest dog race is 1000 miles long. Racers put their dogs through the grueling task of running over those 1000 miles in a short a time as possible. The obvious consequence is the comprimised well-being of race dogs. Every year dogs die. More so, major injury causes Dog Mushers (racers) to drop out of the race. Dogs who are hurting often still are forced to race.
Dog training results in dogs getting beat/hit. I've seen it first-hand. Many mushers don't "spare the rod". This instills fear to achieve obedience to these loving dog friends. Nobody should hit a dog.
Dogs live all their lives, from puppies, on chains outdoors. Growing up on a chain ensures that dogs will be obedient, mind-troubled race machines. Psychological development is hampered or SEVERED when you are forced to live on a chain. Bottom line.
When race dogs are born. The small and "weak" are often disposed of by hitting their heads on rocks or equivalent. Racers don't want to deal with the expenses of raising an animal that can't be a living race machine.
For these are only some of the reasons why we boycott races like the Yukon Quest, or, as I like to call it THE YUCAN'T REST.
The animals used in the circus travel many miles every year without the proper care and abuse. Elephants are chained up and forced to stand in their own waste. They are caged in the heat without water. Elephants are trained with abusive methods, they are mentally broken down with brutal beatings some days at a time, they are beaten with clubs and shocked with electric prods, stabbed with sharp hooks and whipped. Baby elephants are taken from their mothers at one year of age and are stripped of their wildlife social bonds. Elephants in the wild live up to 70 years old. They live in herds and have large extended families. They take baths and find shade in hot weather. Large cats are also stripped of their wildlife traits. They can't hunt for food, sleep in the sun, and roam for miles each day. Lets put a stop to this abuse and stop using animals as entertainment in the circus.
