Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

AF­TER three years com­plain­ing about the speed­ing and in­crease traf­fic prob­lem on Os­prey Drive and Yange­bup Drive, the wait is over.

I had a Cock­burn coun­cil traf­fic road plan­ning tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer come out and we both wit­nessed the care­less drivers.

On Wed­nes­day, July 6 be­tween 4 and 4.15pm, we wit­nessed about 100 ve­hi­cles pass in front of my house on Os­prey Drive.

About 95 per cent of the ve­hi­cles were over the 50km/h speed limit and one four-wheel-drive ve­hi­cle went up on the foot­path for about 15 me­tres to pass an­other ve­hi­cle.

One truck was do­ing more than 70km/h and two Transperth buses more than 60km/h.

In ad­di­tion, ve­hi­cles were tail­gat­ing. WAYNE DEN­NIS, Yange­bup.
