Dear Mr. Schmitt,


I am writing in the name of the residents of Arrow Street, which is located in the Didsbury area. As you may now, we live in a bohemian quarter so our street is cobble with narrow sidewalks. Even though the street is relatively short, it can be very crowded during the traffic jams which can emerge despite the fact that the street is straight one, offering easy pass for two vehicles in both directions. Having in mind the number of old people and children trespassing it every day in situation where many drivers accelerate or drive fast it can be very dangerous to be at street in many occasions. Accidents have happened, luckily with no severe consequences.


So, I was wondering if you could do something for our street. I request you to construct several speed bumps along the street, especially near the school, as we believe that it surely slow down the vehicles. We cannot wait anymore, as we know that it is perfect timing, especially because of the weather, since the summer is perfect timing for construction works, as the traffic will be eased and children out of school.


Thank you very much in advanced,
