No surprise there then eh. There are to many idiot motorists in the area who seem to think that as soon as they enter the Penryn Bypass, they can use it as a racetrack. There have been fatalities on this road in the past, as a direct result of morons breaking the speed limit and/or racing. The Penryn Bypass is a safe enough stretch of road if you keep to a reasonable speed. Unfortunately, life is 'cheap', and i don't think that if someone was killed on this road every day it would alter the 'Speedsters' way of driving.
Would the installation of Speed Cameras help ? Answers on a Postcard please, addressed to Cornwall Council.......... who can't be bothered?
Wow, look at the Potholes appearing, and getting bigger by the day!
