War declared on bad boy racers
GLENROTHES: Thrill-seekers depriving residents of sleep
People power is taking on horsepower as a group of Glenrothes residents wage war on late-night boy racers.
Scores of townsfolk have signed a petition calling for the speed limit on one of the area’s busiest roads to be slashed amid claims they are being kept awake at night by local speeders.
Householders in Finglassie, Stenton and Pitteuchar are calling on town councillors to cut the speed limit on the B921 dual carriageway from 70mph to just 50mph.
They say the noise from large exhausts on the cars of adrenaline junkie drivers is too loud to sleep through.
Condemning those using the route as a “makeshift speed track”, Finglassie resident Peter Ehmann said a fatality on the stretch was inevitable unless the council intervenes.
