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
