Traffic concerns spreading with two petitions

Body: 

Two petitions highlighting concerns about traffic increases in Edinburgh have come to our attention.

One is available in Mr Malik's newsagent shop on the corner of Lynedoch Place and Drumsheugh Gardens and the other at the West End Medical practice in Chester Street Towards Palmerston Place.

Both are gaining signatures at a rate of knots and illustrate that awareness of the developing problem is gaining ground.

They are another sign that councillors need to sit up and take notice to put pressure on the council officials to change the current council policy of denial, obfuscation and pretending that increasing traffic in residential streets will not lead to increasing ill health, illness, chronic respiratory conditions and even early deaths.
