LETTER: Close the lights

Share this article

WHY can’t the Oving crossroads be shut?

Oving Road has a 20mph limit – except when the traffic lights are green.

Everyone drives on the left – except those going to the Ben Turner industrial estate when there’s a queue of traffic.

These people drive on the right (wrong) side of the road, endangering other road-users and people crossing the road going to and from their homes.

Some people enjoy the local nightclub.

Brilliant, I am not going to stop you.

But why should I risk life and limb dodging the racing cars (sorry taxis) using Oving Road as their version of Brands Hatch?

Closing the crossroads makes road safety sense – or would you rather run over me, my family and neighbours so you don’t have to queue for a few extra minutes?
