THE FAMILY of a West Drayton woman who died after she was in a collision with a car is hoping a petition for improved safety measures will prevent another tragedy.
Mum-of-one Lisa Clubb , 29, died at the scene of the accident on the eastbound carraigeway of Hillingdon Hill on August 25.
Her sisters Clare and Kim, mum Sue and dad Walter have launched an online petition asking the council to consider installing safety measures, such as a speed camera, in the road.
They also want a pedestrian crossing, which is already installed on the same stretch of road, to be named after Lisa, who lived in The Common, West Drayton.
Clare said she hoped to gain as much support as possible for the idea, which could help to reduce the number of future accidents and create a legacy to Lisa.
She said: “We just want to save a life and prevent this from happening to anyone else. We want to stop another family from going through the pain we are going through.”
Lisa was walking to Clare’s house at around 10.30pm when she was in collision with a black BMW.
The driver was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving. He was bailed until late September and then again until the end of this month (October).
Lisa’s family paid tribute to the former chef as popular and caring, and a loving mum to her to two-year-old daughter, Demi Donnelly.
Dozens of flowers were laid near the spot where she died and mourning friends left messages on the social networking site Facebook.
The online petition has so far attracted more than 500 signatures, enough to warrant a meeting with the cabinet member for transportation, councillor Keith Burrows.
He will decide whether or not to go ahead with the proposals.
He said: “The council welcomes petitions as one way people can let us know their concerns, and we will consider every petition carefully.
“Residents’ safety is a top priority for the council and we will continue to work with residents and other organisations to make the borough’s roads safer.”
The petition remains open for signatures until November 30.
