It concerns me very much that the removal of speed bumps will inevitably lead to more speeding and more fatalities. Police resources are so stretched that speed traps are few and far between and the continued absence of fixed cameras from the vast majority of roads encourages reckless driving, even on housing estates. How many children will fall victim in the school holidays to these callous and selfish individuals who think they have a divine right to ignore speed limits? Councils should be doing FAR more to remind drivers of the 30 mph limit and of the presence of children, as is the case in Germany. Road safety seems to have a low priority in some counties, Leicestershire being a case in point. Letters to the local paper and emails to the police have no effect.
