Petition launched after fatal A44 crash

A PETITION calling for signs and speed cameras on a road where three people including a six-year-old boy were recently killed is gaining momentum.

Campaigners told Worcester News that there have been previous issues on the A44 Spetchley Road and the deaths have sparked them to launch the official petition appealing to Worcestershire Highways.

The petition, entitled Speed Camera Spetchley Road, says: “It is time a speed camera was installed on this 50mph stretch as well as a sign erected stating there is a school.

“Something needs to be done, either by lowering the speed, or installing a speed camera and definitely a warning sign stating there is a school.

“Something needs to be done sooner rather than later before anyone else loses their life.”
