Hi Local Safer Neighbourhood Team,
I live on Milkwood Road and am becoming growingly concerned about the amount of speeding cars and motorcyclists who are using it as some kind of cut through / race track. I wondered if you knew of any plans to slow them down?
I've been quietly hoping it just improves, but after a speeding overtaker nearly hit me yesterday (must of been doing 60mph or thereabouts), and motercyclist (wearing a balaclava no less) felt the need to perform high-speed wheelies this morning were the final straws for me, so I called the police. It's getting quite insane and it simply doesn't feel safe - I genuinely think a serious crash is likely unless something changes.
Any thoughts? Could the council do something? For example, I imagine a speed camera at the mid-point of the road would make it's money back in about a week.
