  • Ref these road humps - have again today had a nasty incident with drivers (understandably ) using the middle of the road to avoid the humps nearest the crossing rather than risk getting their cars wheels or undercarriage ruined due to shoddy workmanship. These dont just slow the traffic down they make cars stop suddenly - which is surely as dangerous as what they are there to avoid>?

  • This has got to be sorted! Today I was driving over the humps and a car coming towards me on the other side (where the worst ones are) veered over to my side of the road when his tyres hit the hump. I dont think this was his fault - just that the height and depth of the hump can cause cars to tilt over!!

  • So, well over 2 months since this was first reported and still nothing has been done! Today I again nearly had a car drive into me after hitting the bump (and no they were not speeding) and it throwing the car off balance.

    These are dangerous not just to the vehicles but to people as well.

    How much longer do we have to wait to get this sorted - maybe you'll be like Grenfell Towers and sort it once someone is injured!

  • Still nothing been done about this. Still observing dangerous manoeuvres to avoid. Surely this needs sorting after over 4 months?
