In­tim­i­da­tion for stick­ing to limit

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

IN DE­CEM­BER last year my hus­band was fined for speed­ing when avoid­ing a col­li­sion with some­one driv­ing badly in Bad Mun­stereifel Road, Ash­ford, when ap­proach­ing the junc­tion 10 round­about. Af­ter 54 years of driv­ing with a clean li­cence, he had to pay and re­ceive points on his li­cence. De­spite the cir­cum­stances, he was guilty. Since that time, he is most con­scious of his speed. And I must say that the amount of in­tim­i­da­tion re­ceived on this same road from driv­ers (mostly van driv­ers) is un­bear­able – be­cause he in­sists on driv­ing within the 30mph limit where or­dered to do so. It ranges from wav­ing fists, ver­bal in­sults and hoot­ers full­blast whilst speed­ing past, to tail-gat­ing. I would ad­vise the au­thor­i­ties to get down there quickly, and they could nab a few more to swell the cof­fers. And at the same time give a bit of pro­tec­tion to those ob­serv­ing the speed limit. Alex Smith, Pere­grine Close, Hythe.
