SLOW DOWN, SHOW SOME CONSIDERATION
AS a long-term resident on Howden Rd, I would like to remind users that there is a 60km/h limit on both Howden and Brightwater roads.
There is an increasing number of through traffic using the roads as a short-cut between Blackmans Bay and the Channel Highway, particularly since the roundabout was installed at the start of Algona Rd. This roundabout is a notorious bottleneck in the mornings and evenings.
It is of particular note that a lot of the speeding vehicles are utes and larger four-wheel drive vehicles travelling early mornings and later in the afternoons with little regard for the local residents.
Every day my wife and myself put our lives in the hands of these road users just to get out of our driveway.
Please give the locals some consideration or use the Algona Rd speedway. Gary Williams Howden
