For as long as I've lived on our estate, a sunny day means Reginald Mitchell Way turns into a race way, with bikes and suped up cars turning the road into a race way.
Doing nothing has done nothing to improve the situation
Writing and asking the council to help has done nothing to improve this situation
Asking to start a speed watch program then to be told we can't actually patrol Reg Mitch, has done nothing
What else can we do?
- Phone 101 the police line and just report the instance. If you don't know all of the details, you don't know, but if you witness a bike or car travelling a speed report it. The police with their vastly cut budget can't respond to all calls. Helping build a case for them with wise them up so that they increase patrols on hot days or are ready for it.
- Members of the community have also talked of driving a van guard of cars up and down Reginald Mitchell Way for as long as it takes side by side, doing the speed limit, obeying the law and controlling the speed ourselves.
it's dangerous, it's damn well noisy for residents on the estate, more so if you live on the side right next to the road.
Do your bit, just ring 101.
