War de­clared on bad boy rac­ers

GLENROTHES: Thrill-seek­ers de­priv­ing res­i­dents of sleep

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - Jonathan wat­son

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.
