    Are we actually going to do anything about this yet? Or does another person have to die? Or are you waiting for someone’s child to be taken from them? Because if that does happen the community will not back down till something has been done about it, and blame the people who are supposed to be helping us!

      The road is a nightmare, my neighbours and our cars have already been hit while parked all due down to speed.
      No one is particularly interested even with all the incidents that have happened.

        Councillors John McGrath and Richard MacRae have mentioned this lots of times at various meetings. Unfortunately the County Councillors are not interested. Please email Councillors John Doddy and John Longdon and let us know if they respond as they constantly ignore our email and email from other Councillors and the Town Council.

    Some people use it as a dragstrip, whazz a couple of cameras there, or even just speed set flashguns to scare them into behaving properly on the road.

    It’s like no one is bothered how many people, kids have to get injured or killed before this is sorted I have never seen a street so bad for speeding and as for emailing councillors they won’t do anything it’s all about money even a few speed cameras would be a start, but we get a few signs saying its 30 for a reason, any one listen to that obviously not.
