Dan­ger­ous drivers ig­nore speed limit

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Points Of View -

The A2070 Bad Mun­stereifel Road now has a 40mph speed limit to help pro­tect ve­hi­cles emerg­ing from Bar­rey Road and cross­ing the dual car­riage­way to en­ter the Ash­ford re­tail park.

It is be­ing to­tally ig­nored, with some drivers going past Bar­rey Road at dou­ble the 40mph limit. Cars that at­tempt to keep to the limit are tail­gated, flashed or un­der­taken.

Some­thing needs to be done as soon as pos­si­ble to pre­vent a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent along this stretch of road. As you en­ter this part of the dual car­riage­way, and as you exit Bar­rey Road, it clearly shows it is 40mph. So any­one who vis­its the re­tail park, ex­pect­ing traf­fic to be slower when try­ing to exit has a rude awak­en­ing. Wil­liam Ab­bott Ash­ford
