I SAW the police manning a speed check in New Street recently and I suspect they did a roaring trade, as I, along with many elderly residents and mums, tried to cross this race track.

Even as a car driver it is difficult pulling out of Corunna Main and because of the blind bend the slow sign obviously doesn’t get noticed.

And who on earth sanctioned residents’ parking so close to the corner? There isn’t even a house. There have been a number of near misses.

A solution would be a pedestrian crossing or traffic lights on the junction and removal of the parking spaces or at least moving them.
