Lives are irreplaceable

I AM writing to support the residents requesting a 30mph speed limit on the stretch of the A368 from Sandford to Churchill.

I AM writing to support the residents requesting a 30mph speed limit on the stretch of the A368 from Sandford to Churchill.

I live in Sandford and often help my son to do his paper round. On many occasions I have heard the sound of a car as it approaches the Greenhill Lane end of Sandford and proceeds to speed past me. The reason, the sight of a 'National Speed Limit' sign. This car is still in a 30mph speed limit so I always use the 'slow down' hand signal as it goes past - but to little avail. One car sped past at the same point three times in one week.

I can assure you a fast car in a residential area can be quite frightening when it is dark at this time of year.

I cannot understand why we need a National Speed Limit sign on such a small stretch of road. It contains a bus stop, houses, a junction, a long bend and finally leads to a stretch with no path. In fact, I don't see a reason why the authority should look at the area it already provides 'free' bus passes to residents due to the road being dangerous.
