Re: increased police presence
Hello, I am the Sergeant in charge of St. Margaret's Safer Neighbourhood Team. There was a rise in vehicle crime at the start of the year. It has subsided.
We are looking to set up Neighbourhood Watches in the area so, if you feel you can help, please contact us.
sorry for the typo - that should read increase police presence!
I have also noticed a few patrol cars in South Western Road, which I have never seen in 10 years.
Anti-social behaviour - Kenny
I'm sure this has been an issue for a long time, but as the weather gets better and the nights get longer, it tends to get worse. Living on Godstone Road, we've become used to noisy groups of young people walking to and from Moor Mead Park where they spend the summer evenings doing goodness knows what. They often throw things around and generally make a nuisance of themselves.
This evening, however, a group of five or six of them were walking past, one of whom decided to stop and throw several glass bottles at random cars. He seemed to be doing this for a good few minutes until his friends shouted at him to stop. His name seems to be Kenny, had shaved or very short blond hair and was about 5'7. I have no idea if these idiots live in the area, but it would be nice to let their parents know what they were up to.
Re: Pedestrian Crossing St Margarets Roundabout
Firstly I'd like to apologise for the apparent delay in responding. Clearly my IT skills are not as good as I thought, the first post not appearing.
With regard to your enquiry, one of our traffic colleagues has conducted research and found only one accident involving the injury to a pedestrian for the last 36 months. Clearly, that is one accident too many but it does not flag the roundabout up as a particular concern. There are obvious limitations to our data. Only injury accidents are recorded and there is no tally for "might", "almost" or "possibly". Our traffic colleague has already forwarded the issue to TfL when raised by Mr Cannings. If we re informed of any developments I will let you know.
In the meantime, I would urge you to keep taking care at the crossing even when you have priority. For our part, we will regularly visit the junction and deal with any violations we discover.
*Nearly killed for the 3rd time this year- Pedestrian crossing *
For the third time this year myself and my daughter were very nearly knocked down by a car at the crossing on the St Margarets Rd, next to the St Margarets roundabout. The speeding blue mini (LD reg) was turning left from the A316 and failed to stop at the red light. I have reported this to the police, Richmond council and TFL. TFL have apparently made an urgent report to the Traffic Operations Dept who should come down to the crossing within 10-15 days. This I am very sceptical about. I remember people from TFL coming down to look at this problem at the beginning of last year, but nothing has been done as this is the 3rd time this has happened this year. This being the most serious incident as my daughter who is now nearly 3 and currently undergoing chemotherapy likes to walk into St Margarets when she has the energy and was crossing the road holding my hand when the mini came speeding around. If the white, male, middle aged, bald driver had hit us he would have killed my daughter outright at that speed. I am also pregnant so my second child would have been killed also. I would appreciate any advise as to where I should take this next? Local Councillor, MP? Local Paper? I believe this is a very serious situation and hope something will be done before we face a tragedy in our Borough.
