Speeding traffic, no priority given to pedestrians

Reported anonymously at 15:40, Tue 17 December 2019

Sent to Bristol City Council 5 minutes later

Rodney Road has become a rat race for people going between Two Mile Hill Road and Speedwell Road, and given that Rodney Road, is quite thin in places, the cars cannot freely pass each-other, which causes a build up of idling cars, pumping out nitrogen dioxide.

Many school children commute down Rodney Road and with the playfield on the road, there is a lot of pedestrians using the street, which aren't given priority over the traffic.

The next road over that connects Two Mile Hill and Speedwell - New Queen Street, is much more suitable for going between the two streets as it is much much wider, has more traffic controls, such as lights, many 20 signs, 20 signs on painted onto the road, and the pavements are generally wider, which in Rodney Road, they are quite thin in places, meaning people have to step out into the road to pass each other, which with the fast traffic is an accident waiting to happen. This is especially important as quite a few properties at the thinner part of the street open directly onto the pavement, rather than have front gardens.
