Home-made 30mph sign on main King's Lynn route spells out message
A home-made 30mph sign has appeared along a main route into Lynn urging drivers to “Slow you down boi”.
The sign has been attached to a lamppost half way down Wootton Road.
Wootton Road resident, Trevor Bailey, who lives close to where the sign has appeared, said drivers continuously speed down this straight stretch of road, sometimes reaching 50 and 60mph.
He said: “Nobody seems to be taking any notice of drivers speeding down this road.
“It is at all times of day and reaches its worst around 7am to 8am and again from 5pm until 1am.”
The road formerly had a radar speed sign which would flash a motorists’ speed, but this was taken down some years ago.
Mr Bailey said residents along Wootton Road “just want the authorities to acknowledge there is an issue and do something to deter people speeding along the road”.
He added: “I have no idea who put it there. It seems to be working in slowing drivers down, but whether that is because drivers are just slowing down to read it, I am unsure.
“Drivers seem to have a speeding mentality along this road possibly because it is a straight stretch and a main route into town.
“Children use this route to get to school and are constantly walking down this road, something needs to be down to slow these people down.”
