VIL­LAGE USED AS RACE TRACK

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

NAME AND AD­DRESS WITH­HELD THE road through the Vil­lage of Hyde Heath from the B485 is con­stantly used as a race track.

This road passes a pri­mary school and a few hun­dred yards be­yond is a res­i­den­tial care home.

We as a com­mu­nity have been try­ing des­per­ately for many years to have flash­ing lights out­side the school, an av­er­age speed cam­era which will au­to­mat­i­cally check the speed and is­sue a fine or road calm­ing humps.

Trans­port for Bucks will not agree to any of these re­quests un­til there is a fa­tal­ity.

There are no street lights in the vil­lage and in some ar­eas no path- ways, par­tic­u­larly along Wee­don Hill which is the main road through the vil­lage.

I can­not find words strong enough to high­light the fact that money and bu­reau­cracy comes be­fore lives and some­one has to lose a life to im­ple­ment a sim­ple so­lu­tion.
