The hochstadter kellerbergverein, together with the parents' council of the high school, is campaigning for a speed limit of 30 km/h on the kellerberg. Jungst, birgit volker and ulla rosensteiner from the parents' council, as well as karsten wiese from the kellerberg association, handed over a list with almost 1000 signatures to district administrator alexander tritthart (CSU). The aim of the action is to protect the numerous schoolchildren and visitors when crossing the road. In addition, the highly sensitive cellars are to be protected from further deterioration.
At the last meeting last year, hannah reuter, spokeswoman for the district administration, explained that the police and the district administration did not consider a speed limit of 30 to be necessary. Mayor, association and parents of the high school do not let up and so they ask together with mayor gerald brehm (JL) for a new review of the case.
Due to the relatively high speed of the cars, segments of the basement hill were in danger of collapsing. "A lot of money was invested in the cellars and now everything is slowly collapsing", said wiese. One simply has to reintroduce speed 30, which already existed once and was changed back to speed 50 in 2006.
Signs like "caution school were hardly of interest to any motorist, said birgit volker, who has also had negative experiences as a pick-up mother.
Mayor brehm drew attention to the totality of the situation. The schoolchildren unfortunately take the shortest way and in the matter of the cellar, thus culturally, the refusal was actually also not comprehensible. The state road 2763 is from the exit weberskeller to the kerschensteiner road an extremely sensitive area. "This is a justified exceptional case and the district authority could approve such a thing", said brehm to the district administrator.
Alexander tritthart received the request with great interest and goodwill: "the high number of signatures is a signal for me that the burghers are behind it." but due to the status of the state prosecution, the matter is much more complicated. The decision was made by the district office, but all parties involved had to be taken on board. This was the state building authority, the police and the lower traffic authority.
He suggested to the mayor that a speedometer should be installed at the site in question in order to be able to prove how fast people are actually driving.
