I WOULD respond to the letter from Trish and Graham Martin on the Ratepayers Associations Objections to six more Traffic Humps in Bills Lane.
After a bad experience they believe road humps will be a cure all but our experience and that of many residents is that this is not the case.
The scheme is funded under the Safer Routes to School programme in respect of a transport plan from nearby Woodlands Infants School where only 30 children walk to school all accompanied by adults and very few cross Bills Lane which has a crossing warden. We believe this arrangement is satisfactory.
There is increasing opposition to Road Humps from householders who suffer noise and vibration as well as car owners and bus passengers. Humps will also divert traffic onto other roads, in this case Shakespeare Drive.
