Talk of the town from our so­cial me­dia

Ayrshire Post - - Advertising Feature -

Po­lice have been urged to help put the brakes on speed­ing mo­torists on Whitletts Road.

David Wills said: “They should make the road an Ur­ban Clear­way and ed­u­cate drivers how to read road signs, by that I mean the ap­pli­ca­ble times of the bus lanes.

“Count­less in­ci­dents of other drivers ‘ pop­ping their Pringle’ be­cause they think you are un­der­tak­ing by us­ing the bus lane when ac­tu­ally it is not in force, drivers hog­ging the right lane be­cause they ex­pect a parked car 400m ahead con­trib­ute to the is­sue and res­i­dents mostly have drive­ways.”

Anne Gor­don said: “We are need­ing cam­eras at Whitletts Round­about badly.”

Hugh McCutcheon said: “You could put 20 speed cam­eras on that road, it’s the ir­re­spon­si­ble drivers that think they are un­touch­able and can do what they want and don’t think about who they might hurt if any­thing hap­pens.”

Thomas An­der­son said: “It’s not just Whitletts Road. I had a taxi over­take me when I was do­ing 30 just go­ing into Prest­wick, then con­tin­ued to speed all the way through Prest­wick and I lost sight of him. Just wish I’d got his num­ber.”

May Dil­lon said: “Could do with at least one in Walker Road. The speed they go up and down the hill to­wards McCalls av­enue is a scan­dal.”

We told that a cat was sav­aged by an out- of­con­trol dog.

Fiona Ste­wart said: “So sad for the owner who lost their wee fur baby.

“Come on peo­ple if you have a dog, or any an­i­mal , keep it un­der con­trol.

“It’s our re­spon­si­bil­ity as own­ers!

“So sad what a hor­ri­ble thing to hap­pen.”

Mar­garet Chir­cop said: “Too many of these in­ci­dents hap­pen­ing.”

Donna Boyd said: “That is to­tally heart break­ing. Send­ing thoughts to the own­ers.”

Ann Cat Gray said: “So sad. Hope they find the dog.”

We told that a man was at­tacked in an at­tempted car- jack­ing on Whitletts Road.

Mar­garet Whalen said: “I al­ways lock my car once in­side plus lock car after re­fu­elling be­fore I head in to pay for fuel.

“You never know who is about.”

Louise Lauch­lan said: “This is why my doors are al­ways locked when I am driv­ing.

“Too many things like this hap­pen­ing now!”

Mar­garet Hamil­ton said: “That’s why I al­ways lock car doors as soon I get in the car.

“And I lock it when I go for petrol.

“It’s a scary world.”
