National Speed Limit sign at the top of the lane following on from 50mph limit on the A361 is not helpful. Speed of traffic on this unmarked single track road may well be within the 60mph speed limit but is excessive given the five homes with driveways leading on to the lane together with farmyard, all in close proximity of one another. Children, animals, domestic vehicles and agricultural vehicles all in danger of fast moving traffic. Would request removal of the National Speed Limit sign at the top of the lane which surely only encourages drivers to speed up once they have exited the 50mph limit on the A361. Also would request signs (before and after houses/farmyard) asking drivers to slow down/drive carefully through this community referencing children and agricultural vehicles.
