After lot of campaigning by some residents to slow down traffic down the lane where I live they are now going to install some "sleeping policemen". At the moment there is a 30 miles speed limit which is going to be reduced to 20 and there are already 3 narrowed sections of the road which have give way signs and single file traffic. I suppose we should be happy about this as we often have to brake hard when driving out of our cul-de-sac onto the lane as cars come round the blind bend rather fast. Also our previous cat was hit by a car and killed on the lane. The problem is the only other way to get out if the entrance to the lane is closed means a detour of about 3 miles along badly maintained country lanes. This time of year that could be made much worse if it happens to snow! We might be isolated for 3 weeks! Please send food parcels!
