  • Dear OCC, on Sunday morning there was an accident where a car hit a pedestrian who was walking on the footpath, resulting in the wing mirror being taken clean off the side of the car. It was an extremely lucky escape for the pedestrian who suffered an injured arm. If however it had been the back of a child's head that was hit at 60 or more mph, the outcome would have been VERY different. Highways Agency and OCC, please do something now to make this footpath safer for all road users - pedestrians and drivers - and look seriously at the issue of speed on this busy residential road. The speed limit is simply too high for a residential approach to a village - and the limit is out of keeping with all other approaches to villages in the area. Why is that? The ongoing neglect of the footpath and addressing the speed limit could prove deadly if no action is taken to remedy these considerable concerns. Yours faithfully, Very Concerned Resident.
