Road rage con­tin­ues

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

FOR more than three years I have been lob­by­ing for some­thing to be done about the Bux­ton Rd in­ter­sec­tion at the Isis. The po­lice do mon­i­tor this sec­tion of high­way with speed cam­eras. I have been told that this sec­tion of road has had no “re­portable” in­ci­dents, that is no-one has been killed, and it is classed as low pri­or­ity. Re­cently, I nearly had a tourist bus run into the back of my car when I when turn­ing left into Bux­ton Rd. Only last Thurs­day we had a close shave with a B-dou­ble which did not want to come to a stop and man­aged to squeeze through a tight gap. Your pa­per re­ported that this in­ter­sec­tion is one of the high­est tick­eted ar­eas in the dis­trict. Need I re­mind our politi­cians of all per­sua­sions that some­thing has to be done about this high-rev­enue earn­ing sec­tion be­fore a se­ri­ous in­ci­dent? All high­way traf­fic has to pass by this in­ter­sec­tion and I am pos­i­tive that no car en­ter­ing or leav­ing Bux­ton Rd would be speed­ing in any di­rec­tion. Merv Hop­ton
