Ignorant and selfish drivers that are a danger on our roads
IS it me or is the standard of driving on our crowded roads getting worse and worse?
I relate two recent incidents which have happened to me.
The first involved a young male driver in an Audi who decided that he was not going to be held up in the M60’s 50mph section and proceeded to overtake, undertake and even veer onto the hard shoulder at speeds well over 70mph.
He clearly had no regard for the rules of the road or the safety of other drivers and I was simply left amazed as this lunatic disappeared into the distance continuing to weave through heavy traffic at speed.
The second involved a van driver who decided that traffic lights mean the following: GREEN is I own this road and don’t you dare be slow in setting off and get in my way; AMBER means first come, first served and I am coming through and RED means shove your way in and (quite literally) two fingers to other drivers.
No wonder we hear more and more about road rage! Angry Driver Stockport
COWS’ MILK IS NOT NATURAL
I RECENTLY read the latest garbage from our experts. We must give up all alternative milk such as soya and almond as it does not contain essential iodine and go back to cows’ milk.
On the next page, I read we must all give up cows’ milk as it contains cancer forming hormones.
I agree with the latter, cows’ milk contains antibiotics pumped into it by the farmers, also it contains puss from abscesses on the cow’s udders and lots of other nasties your not told about, and it is meant for calves to drink not humans.
We are the only creatures who drinks the milk of another animal.
Drinking cows milk is disgusting and far from natural. Sara Moor Shaw Heath
ALARM OVER TRAFFIC FUMES
OVER the past decade an international consensus has emerged that schools should not be located within 150 metres of a busy road because of traffic fumes.
A busy road is one with more than 10,000 vehicles a day on it.
There are already such schools in Stockport. It is alarming that their number would be increased if the proposed A6-M60 dual carriageway is built.
The road would carry 60,000 vehicles a day 100 metres from Dial Park Primary School, overlooking the green space in Offerton.
To make matters worse, the plans published for the road earlier this year include a junction with traffic signals on the dual carriageway next to the school.
Stationary traffic is the most polluting. The council is moving rapidly to decide whether to push ahead and seek government funding to build the road.
Councillors should pause and seriously consider the environmental impact of the road on Dial Park Primary, on homes and on the beautiful Lower Goyt and Poise Brook Valleys. Graham Trickey name and address supplied
