Have your say

Is it my imagination, or are there a lot more crashes on the roads of late? Almost every day on the radio, or in the papers, crashes are reported, with some fatalities, yet nothing is being done to prevent them. Some people blame the roads, such as Broad End junction on the A47 at Walsoken, but if people drove correctly, there wouldn’t be any problems there.

It also seems to me that the only time we now see police cars is when there has been a crash, and they attend to find the reason, whatever it might be, as they certainly no longer patrol like they used to. We are also seeing an increase in various crimes being committed and those responsible getting away with them.

Recently a new law came into effect about tailgating and being fined £50 with three penalty points on the licence. But like many other people, I have not heard of anybody being caught. It happens mainly because the vehicle behind is being driven by an impatient driver. Overtake when safe, keeping to the speed limit.
