Road safety is of great concern to me, and I’ve spent the summer with the local Labour Party campaigning on this issue.
I want to see the 20mph limit area expanded and that limit to be properly enforced. Children and the elderly should feel safe.
I’m particularly concerned that whilst making austerity cuts the ruling Conservative Kettering Borough Council and Conservative Northamptonshire County Council have allowed Montagu Street and Stamford Road to be recently designated by the Road Safety Federation to be rated the riskiest road in the East Midlands. I’m demanding swift action on this serious issue.
