Speeding Traffic

Heather says: .

I am having reports of some very poor and dangerous driving in the area. These include people breaking the speed limit and overtaking on double white lines. I have had a number of reports on both the A490 between Chirbury and Churchstoke - particularly around the Marrington Hall turning - and also on the B4386 near the turnings to Aston Pigott and Rogers. Both these stretches of road have concealed turnings and dips in the road - hence their dangerous nature. Accidents do happen on both roads and are sometimes serious. The A488 also suffers from dangerous drivers.

Our local police say:

If any residents do witness dangerous driving we have a online form that can be filled out - https://www.westmercia.police.uk/article/6617/Allegation-of-Bad-Driving-Form -

If we have any local reports of particular vehicles, particularly a vehicle using that stretch on a regular basis, we (local team from Bishops Castle) will target and visit them.

If you have a dash cam then that will be useful too , it gives very powerful evidence. Please also send details to me and I will report locally. Dangerous driving really does seem to be on the increase so let's try to stop it here where it could kill local people and further afield.
