This blog is to make you aware of just how dangerous the A5 is between Gailey
Island and Weston Park. So many accidents have happened now from at least one
driver being careless and not taking enough notice. The road is dangerous when it
comes to visibility as the road goes up and down so sometimes it is impossible to see
if there is any oncoming traffic, which I myself have witnessed drivers pulling out and
overtaking anyway, regardless of the lack of vision.
I am writing this blog as I feel so strong about the fact that there is not one single
speed camera along that stretch and is completely unacceptable! When so many
accidents happen down that road, you think it would be the right thing and clever
thing to do would be to put speed camera along the road. But I have yet to see one!
People overtake and speed and go as fast as they want down there as they know that
there are no cameras to catch them. I have witnessed drivers going past me doing way
more than 60 mph and I am sure most people have witnessed that too!
Being such a dangerous road, I personally think there should be at least one camera
down that stretch! I think it would stop some of the accidents from happening as
drivers wouldn’t be able to speed.
Past Gailey Island on the left, there is a turning to a little village called Brewood.
People pull out of there knowing that at any moment a car could come over the brow
of the hill, heading towards Gailey Island. I just think that nothing is safe on that road
and I think something needs to be done about it! People speed over the brow of the
hill not knowing that someone may have just pulled out from the Brewood turning
and be going a lot slower than them! I think if there were speed cameras, they
wouldn’t be able to go so fast or they would be fined. This is just my opinion, but
please, please let me know if you agree… maybe we could do something about it.
