Letter: ‘I agree over traffic island’

Share this article

EDITOR - My husband and I wholeheartedly agree with previous comments relating to the traffic island.

My thoughts on first encountering the thing were that anyone hitting it at speed with a front wheel would simply be flipped over.

Bearing in mind the speed limit at that point, and there will be those who think they know the road and suddenly find themselves confronted by this island (more like a continent in my view!), and then have nowhere to go.

I notice it was apparently constructed in accordance with all the guidelines, however, as usual, where does common sense come into it?

At the very least there should be warnings before motorists arrive at the site.
