To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament.

The petition of the undersigned shows:

That the number of accidents and ``near misses'' which have occurred in La Perouse Street between Flinders Way and Monaro Crescent due to the volume of traffic and excessive speed of vehicles using the street is of great concern to the residents of the area and to the parents of children attending Red Hill Primary School. A large percentage of the cars using this and nearby streets appear to take little notice of the many traffic warning signs in the area.

Your petitioners request that the Senate, in Parliament assembled, should:

Request action be taken by the appropriate authorities to install roundabouts at the intersections of La Perouse Street with Flinders Way, Hartog Street, Carnegie Crescent and Monaro Crescent as a matter of urgency in an effort to reduce the speed of traffic and, hopefully, the number of accidents.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
