Po­lice may sig­nal end to Sil­ver­stone

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

I HAVE to say that it is good to see a po­lice pres­ence along the A413 from time to time, par­tic­u­larly be­tween Chal­font St Peter and Tatling End.

There have been some hor­rific ac­ci­dents down this stretch of road over the past few years and yet you still see cars whip­ping along at nearly 100 mph, us­ing the road as another Sil­ver­stone.

I drive along this part sev­eral times a week and at no time do I see many driv­ers go­ing along at a sen­si­ble speed, even with the sign that this road has a high crash rate!

Per­haps it would be wise to lower the speed limit to 50mph, or al­ter­na­tively that the po­lice keep pa­trolling this road reg­u­larly to keep driv­ers in check with, at the very least, a heavy fine.
