Only just outside of Hammersmith & Fulham this little girl was killed yesterday by one of the many crap drivers you see speeding through the narrow streets off the Uxbridge Road and about which the police and authorities seem either powerless or not bothered enough to do anything about. Original reports that this was a hit-and-run are wrong, the driver did at least stop at the scene.
I am lucky enough to live in an area that has such stringent traffic calming measures that this sort of driver tends to avoid us. And its more evidence of why we fought so hard to keep them when TfL wanted to tear them down to force an unwanted bus route through our area.
Much of W12 is officially now a 20MPH zone. When will the authorities actually start enforcing it, or haven't enough children been killed yet?
