Traffic calming on Gloucester Road - Have your say!

Mick Davies has just posted the following forum topic about the speeding traffic on Gloucester Road. Please comment by following this link to the forum.

The B4208 across the common is an unrestricted road - meaning the speed limit is 60mph - and we have all observed drivers recklessly exceeding the limit, recklessly overtaking and recklessly speeding on through the 30mph limit into the village.

The County Council will not reduce the speed limit because the road doesn't meet their criteria for doing so and the Safer Roads Partnership and the Police are anyway unlikely to enforce the limit across the common, whatever it is.

It seems that deaths and injuries are required before anything can happen. That's deaths of people of course; livestock doesn't seem to count.

What do you think should be done to calm the traffic across the common and through the village?
