Unsafe Streets

EDM number 769 in 2014-15, proposed by Alan Meale on 04/02/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Roads.

That this House is aware that in today's modern society, streets are rapidly becoming hostile to the vulnerable in local communities because of fast-moving traffic, inappropriate street architecture, parking and inadequate design; notes that according to recent research half of over 65 year olds feel unsafe around traffic; and calls on the Government to recognise the needs of senior citizens and the vulnerable by bringing together, via planning regulations and guidance, measures to reduce traffic speeds in built-up areas, longer pedestrian crossing times, greater restrictions on pavement parking and the introduction of other measures to make the UK's streets easier to negotiate.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
