Dear Sir,

Regarding the person who complained of speeding cars in an Aycliffe street. This problem with speeding vehicles is in every street, even cul-de-sacs!

It is very upsetting to approach a blind bend in the road or a T junction to be confronted with a speeding vehicle coming towards you on the wrong side of the road.

Then there is the driver who has his indicator on but turns in the opposite direction.

It is easy to complain about other drivers but one needs to keep a close watch on ones’ own driving and have it checked by an independent person on a regular basis because everyone gets into bad habits. The Institute of Advanced Motorist do regular mock tests.
