YOU live in a road which has continuous traffic, at peaks over 200 plus cars per hour.

The residents lose wing mirrors (£50/£100 a time) and have dents left in their stationary cars. Cars go up pavements, narrowly missing children coming down their drive and the speed of a large percentage of the cars is way beyond the legal levels.

You have to have eyes in the back of your neck to get safely out of your car and for those with gateways the new addition to their car is a periscope (that is if parked vehicles have left them enough space to get out) to see if they can get out into the road safely.

Maybe now all the readers of this letter will have some idea of what the residents of Slade Road live through day after day after day.

As long as the above condition prevail - courtesy of those trying to avoid the lights and in the main coming down either Nore Road or Avon Way - the residents of Slade Road will fight for the right to a reasonable life in the house they bought well before any lights were a reality.

The residents of this road deserve not only courtesy from all the motorists using this road but understanding from them in respect of how their speed, oblivious to any one's safety, impacts on the lives of the Slade Road residents.
