A TRADER from Banwell says cars are using a road outside his business as a race track’.
Richard Swatridge, who owns Banwell Garden Centre, has written to the parish council asking it to do everything in its power’ to reduce the limit on Castle Hill from 50mph to 30mph.
Access to the centre is near a bend in the road and on a hill which can obscure drivers’ views, according to Richard. The road links the village with Winscombe.
He said: “There have been times when customers, suppliers, and members of staff have had near misses with cars and motorcycles using the 50mph as a target and not the limit.”
