People-friendly initiatives and an end to rat-running are welcome

31 July, 2020

• MY heart goes out to the motorists who are to be “inconvenienced” by the council’s policy to introduce experimental friendly streets measures.

You can almost hear the comments…

“It would be so much easier and save us time if we were still allowed to rat-run through quiet residential side streets rather than being forced to remain on the main roads”.

Those of us living on small residential streets constantly plagued with the pollution, vibration and noise associated with this through-traffic strongly approve of and applaud the council’s decision to adopt mitigating measures to address the problem.
