Residents draw Council's attention to the excessive speeds at which vehicles are traveling along Wickham Street, Brighton. We are genuinely concerned about the amount of cars that continue to travel in excess of the 50 kilometers per hour speed limit and often drive erratically. There are various family and children's attractions on this street including child care facilities and soccer fields which present a greater risk of an accident occurring.

I would like to suggest serious monitoring of Wickham Street to establish the best course of action. However, on discussion with neighbours, this has apparently been an issue for some time. Therefore, I suggest a more sustainable action would be for Council to consider installing speed humps along the street to stop this from becoming a broader issue.
