Every other car is now speeding

I have lived on The Ridge for over 43 years and in that time there has, of course, been a number of cars that have exceeded the speed limit.

Things have changed dramatically.

I would say that now every other car is speeding and I don’t mean by just a few miles an hour. Speeding now is excessive.

Where are the police? They used to have a mobile speed unit from time to time parked near the Sandrock playing fields car park.

I have not seen this for years.

Do we have to wait for someone to be killed before the police take some form of action?

At night motorbikes can be heard speeding along The Ridge at speeds that must be in excess of 60mph.

Once the bypass opens traffic will increase considerably exacerbating the problem.
