Let­ter to the Ed­i­tor

Balmoral Road speed­ing is ur­gent is­sue

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Dear Ed­i­tor Ann Thom­son, Rat­tray

Fur­ther to my let­ter in “The Blairie” dated Septem­ber 15 re­gard­ing speed­ing traf­fic in Balmoral Road, Rat­tray, I find it strange that in all the cur­rent news­pa­per cover­age of con­cerns over speed­ing on the streets of Blair­gowrie and Rat­tray, Balmoral Road does not even get a men­tion.

Blair­gowrie-based Po­lice Scot­land In­spec­tor Gor­don Thom­son is quoted as say­ing that they have ded­i­cated pa­trols to deal with speed­ing ve­hi­cles, but do not have the re­sources to be ev­ery­where.

OK, we know he has to work within a bud­get, but he goes on to say that he wants to ed­u­cate the pub­lic about the dan­gers of speed­ing.

These law-break­ers al­ready know the dan­gers of speed­ing and won’t stop un­til they are brought to jus­tice.

I live on Balmoral Road and have yet to see any po­lice pres­ence, or any at­tempt to curb the con­stant speed­ing.

I can­not fathom why Balmoral Road isn’t in­cluded in the re­mit of the “ded­i­cated pa­trols”.

For the safety of res­i­dents and law-abid­ing mo­torists, Balmoral Road’s omis­sion as an area of cause for con­cern needs to be rec­ti­fied – ur­gently.
