I am very concerned about speeding on Glaziers Lane in Normandy.

I live on the road, have four young children, and live in constant fear whenever they walk or ride to the park.

Some signage went up a few years ago advising drivers of the 30mph limit, but it’s routinely ignored.

The narrow bridge over the railway tracks is an accident waiting to happen, and there’s an especially dangerous bend towards Manor Fruit Farm, where pedestrians are forced to cross. Cars and trucks regularly drive at 50 to 60mph down the road.

I and a sizeable number of my neighbours have had enough of the speeding. Some even park their cars in the street to slow the passing vehicles down. It’s effective – but they shouldn’t have to do it.

We would all like to see some action taken to address this issue before there is a serious accident.

    I have been told by a retired SCC highways traffic manager that it was policy to use parked vehicles as a passive speed control method. It is a lot cheaper than engineering.
