We, the undersigned, petition the Council to Install Safety Bollards at the rank of shops on Ellacombe Road

More details from petitioner:

We have recently approached South Glos Council in regards to having safety bollards installed in front of the parking spaces on Ellacombe Road. This is due to a recent event where a car has mounted the kerb and smashed into a shop front. This is the second time this has happened in 6 months both of which we have been very fortunate that no one was seriously injured. However this footpath is very busy especially during the morning school run and at pick up times. If this had happened during these hours I have no doubt in my mind that this accident could have resulted in serious injury or even death. The council have been to assess the situation and have said that the budget for 2018/19 has been distributed and that it would be considered for 2019/20 although it would be done on a point scoring system and would still not guarantee it would be granted. We feel this is something that needs to be raised as priority as this is for the safety of the local community. We would hope everyone would sign this petition so we can have this looked at as a matter of urgency before another incident occurs and we are not as lucky as the two previous occasions.
