WE, the undersigned, being residents of Kingston Vale
and Kingston Hill, beg to draw your attention to the serious
danger to life and limb arising from the furious driving of
motor Vehicles on the main Portsmouth Road, which runds through
this district.
Several deaths have already been caused by so-called
accidents due to Motor traffic.
Crossing the road is attended by constant danger both
by day and by night from the excessive speed of the great
majority of the numerous cars passing through.
We are of opinion that the only effective check on the
dangerous driving would be the presence of a Police Constable
on point duty, and we earnestly hope that on investigation you
will be able to concur in this view and accordingly cause a
Policeman to be stationed in the village of Kingston Vale.
