  • Yet another driver has burst a tyre on these stones. He has taken photographs. When are the County going to do something about this. This is dangerous.

  • Recently I drove along Jarn Way and was unable to avoid the large stones placed on the road itself. There was no warning. My car tyre hit one stone which tore a hole in my tyre. I complained to the owner of the house where the stones been placed and he simply said that it is my fault and I should take more care. However the stones, even when placed on the edge of the verge are extremely difficult to avoid and very dangerous.

  • I am shocked at the large stones placed on the edge of the grass verge along some 40 metres or so of Jarn Way, so that they lie on the roadway itself. This is incredibly dangerous and has led to damage to at least two cars tyres that I am personally aware of, and many near misses.
