Tackling road safety is to be a big priority for Calderdale Council.
And that could mean more speed cameras and more 20mph zones in places like Brighouse and Elland.
Councillors and officials plan to look at new ways of making roads safer but have also urged communities to get involved.
There are already speed cameras in use on Calderdale Way, Elland, and Elland Wood Bottom, and mobile ones have been used in Elland Road, in Brighouse Road, Brighouse, Halifax Road, Hove Edge, and Stainland Road.
Other new sites are now to be considered. Calderdale has only 12 in total, compared to 40 in Kirklees and 18 in Bradford.
The project follows a big public consultation event over safety issues, involving drivers, cyclists and pedestrians. The event was a great success with over 60 people attending.
Issues discussed included how the council can communicate and respond better to local community concerns, how enforcement can make a difference, what is the biggest barrier to be overcome, and how there can be an increase in road safety awareness.
Speeding drivers was one of the main concerns and the council’s Cabinet will soon be considering a report with firm recommendations for future action, which will then be the subject of broad public consultation.
The Cabinet Member for Economy and Environment, Clr Barry Collins, said: “Our residents have told us that road safety is one of their greatest concerns.
“We regularly use our speed indicator device to check speeds on roads across Calderdale and it is extremely disappointing that on three recent occasions every road checked showed that drivers are still going too fast.
“Enough is enough.
“As a council we can respond on a small scale with road engineering and 20mph limits; however we need to explore new ideas with partners, particularly the police, local road safety groups, parents, and young people.
“The Road Safety Open Space event provided an opportunity for us to work together to find ways of tackling this problem.
“We already have local schemes in place to encourage drivers to slow down; however I want to hear from people across our communities on what more we can do to cut speeds and make sure that everyone can enjoy our shared spaces safely.”
