This is the house that got hit by a speeding MG last Saturday at 6.15pm.
This is some of the damage it did - but imagine how the pedestrian felt who was very close by!
In 2002 I started my campaign to curb sspeeding in this road and Southgate Street, calling for a 20 mph limit. It took three years (so that traffic calming measures could be put in place) to find out that the police would not agree to the limit until traffic is already approaching that level, and that the current 30 mph limit "is sufficient and appropriate".
I have lost count of the number of similar collisions in both Sparhawk and Southgate Street, and have today written to the police to demand that they reconsider their view.
