Councillors in Hull have called on drivers in one of the city’s estates to reduce their speed before a child is killed in a road accident.

Peter Clark, a councillor for Bransholme East, revealed that residents on Noddle Hill Way fear that speeding motorists are a danger to pedestrians and children going to the nearby school.

Mr Clark said that cars turning on to the street from Wawne Road go at such a speed that it is similar to a scene from US cartoon show Wacky Races.

The speed limit on Noddle Hill Way is 20mph but councillor Clark pointed out that some motorists drive at double that speed.

Councillor Anita Harrison has joined in with the calls asking for better road safety, claiming that a pedestrian crossing near the school with fading markings needs to be repainted. She added that drivers also have to take more responsibility for their speed.

    They should look at the section of James Reckitt Avenue that meets up with Ings road, it’s a hot bed for speeders, even some of the double decker buses now do it!

    If you’re from the plod, we would really appreciate a fixed speed camera down here, you’d probably be surprised how many rat runners also speed.

    While councillors are looking at Noddlehill Road area the children from Broadacre Primary School should also be considered. The school is not obvious from Wawne Road as it stands quite a distance away from the road and as this is also a 20mph zone it should have speed indicators to tell motorists how fast they are travelling. They can often be seen using their mobile phones, eating and drinking, and also getting shaved in the morning. This is a main road going into the country where buildings peter out and motorists put their foot down please do something before an accident does happen. These children are very young and are vulnerable.
