Bay­ley Street traf­fic con­cern

As a res­i­dent liv­ing in Bayly Street, Mul­wala I’m ap­palled at the amount of trucks and cars speed­ing and us­ing their mo­bile phones.

Bayly Street has be­come a mo­torist’s speed­way. It’s only a mat­ter of time un­til a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent oc­curs.

Once cars, trucks etc turn into Bayly Street it’s open slather and they do what­ever they like.

Much more sig­nage is needed and even a po­lice car cruis­ing up and down to stop this hoon be­hav­iour.
