    Can we have a discussion at item 11 about the three deaths that have sadly happened on the A52 in our area in the past few weeks.
    This forum and the CAT have discussed the problem of speeding and dangerous driving over the years and it appears that more needs to be done.
    As the latest tweet says “All clear around Sherwin Island” but two people died through what appears to be dangerous driving.
    If any one stands at the Moor Lane pedestrian crossing on the A52 you will see everyday that cars and lorries go through the traffic lights on red. We have not thankfully had an incident at this location but as many children cross the road every school day we do need to consider how we can make ourselves safer.

  2. Cllr Martin Plackett Bramcote Ward BBC says:

    Many Thanks Alan for your comment. Will be pressing for a police presence at our CAT meeting.
    to discuss this on going problem not least because of the fatal accidents of yesterday..

  3. Cllr Martin Plackett Bramcote Ward BBC says:

    A further update. Because of the serious concerns about the problem of speeding on the A52,
    I have written this evening to Sgt. Regan from our Neighbourhood Police asking her to attend our CAT meeting, and to Highways England for their comments and thoughts on how they may be able to help with this ongoing issue.

      ….and also deal with the idiots who still think it’s ok to drive in the bus lane. I’m amazed at how many drivers think they are buses specially approaching the Thoresby Rd traffic lights. If only I had use of a ‘stinger’….

    • Ian Blakeley says:

      Martin, as a local councillor will you press for some ‘repeater’ lights on the outbound A52 positioned so that they are visible to vehicles exiting Town Street. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen, and been in, vehicles trying to get out of Town Street but having to guess about the lights on their immediate right. ie A52

  4. Ian Blakeley says:

    I’d rather that the police concentrated on the drivers who drive badly or unlicensed, and those who fail to keep their vehicles roadworthy, insured, MOT up to date and taxed. But then, thats likely to reduce income rather a lot. What do you gentlemen think?
