A car overturned on Laverack Street in Handsworth yesterday, prompting calls for traffic calming measures to make the street safer for local residents.
It is claimed that the downhill approach to Laverack Street from Richmond Road makes it easy for cars to drive too fast although the outcome of enquiries into yesterday’s crash have not yet been released and speed may not have been a factor.
A resident said traffic calming on Richmond Road would make the approach to Laverack Street, round a blind bend, safer.

“I feel strongly about traffic calming on Richmond Road to slow traffic down on the approach to Laverack Street,” the resident said.
“Yesterday’s crash saw a car hit another car and push it onto a pavement, right next to a gate.
“If anyone had been walking along there at the time the outcome could have been catastrophic.”
