●● HIT and run driver sent to prison af­ter smash­ing into teenager on Poyn­ton street (web­site and Ex­press, March 16). Ron Swan­son: Maybe this will also prompt a re­think of the Poyn­ton shared space, be­cause it makes no real sense any­way. Jake Miller: Re­think the shared space? Why? The guy was driv­ing like a ma­niac, the shared space had noth­ing to do with the in­ci­dent. Roads are safer with­out him on them. Chris Bam­ford: I’m sick of driv­ers thrash­ing through Poyn­ton like it’s some­how in­ter­fer­ing with their jour­ney. If any­thing, this scheme high­lights how in­con­sid­er­ate and ob­nox­ious many driv­ers are. It’s time that the driv­ing test had a psy­cho­me­t­ric as­sess­ment. Joanne Houghton: I had 2 near misses when my kids were lit­tle, be­fore shared space. Karen Hig­gin­botham: Two years is not long enough. So glad you are able Chris to move on with your life, you’re amaz­ing x. Ruth Ken­dall: He should be banned for life! Zoe East: Was on my way home and saw this hap­pen. Glad they’ve got him. Sarah Northrop: Sad thing is, I know this guy, I worked with him and his fam­ily. I find this story so so sad for all in­volved. Tre­for John Hey­wood: Nowhere near long enough! ●● ‘DAN­GER­OUS’ pot holes on Cumberland Street not bad enough says coun­cil (web­site and Ex­press, March 16). Peter Wood: Per­haps the coun­cil of­fi­cers should be sent out on bikes to in­spect such is­sues? It’d be health­ier for them (un­less they fell off in the pot­holes), and it’d re­duce the coun­cil’s car­bon foot­print. Oh, and they might ac­tu­ally un­der­stand the prob­lem. Richard Ruane: I re­ported the ones by the Kings’ end as they were colos­sal! The ones op­po­site the re­gency were caus­ing peo­ple to swerve lanes... still not dan­ger­ous enough! Tara Murkin: The ones on Western Av­enue are hor­ren­dous!
