Well, it is definitely the kind of road were you could get some speed up - if you were late for work for example!

Such is the concern about speeding on this section of Preston Old Road, especially at night, that ALL vehicles have been monitored covertly over the past few weeks. A decision regarding a course of action, if any, is dependent on that data. . . . . then this happens. Grist to the mill.

May be better switching on the brain, first before driving.

You don't turn a car over if you stick to the speed limit and drive within a safe limit.

I am only surprised the accident wasn't at the junction with Kentmere Drive.
Motorists take a big risk turning right off the estate with cars parked on the pavement and partly on the road, visibility is virtually nil
Police drive past umpteen times a day but don't seem to notice the hazard.

You are allowed to use your headlights when it is dark in the U/K are you not?

Your eyesight you can use any time, free!

I totally agree, some cars and vans are parked fully on the pavement in that area making visibility difficult. No thought for disabled people i.e. the blind by the inconsiderate parking either. Come on Mr Plod, get your finger, or should I say your notebook out.

The police say it is nothing to to with them it's the council who deal with that, the council don't do anything either!
