Talk of the town from our social media
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.”
