Speeding drivers fail to obey speed limit through village

RESIDENTS of Southgate have had enough of speeding drivers through the village.

Despite the Highway Patrol being called several times asking for action to be taken, drivers are still speeding through the village at estimated speeds of up to 120kmh, with the speed limit of 50kmh clearly signed.

There seems to be little action.

The village has several families with young children who have to cross the road to meet the school bus morning and afternoon.

What will it take for drivers to slow down and obey the speed limit?

I have personally witnessed children almost struck by speeding drivers, and despite asking them to slow down they take little or no notice.

The speed limit is there for a reason and these inconsiderate and dangerous drivers are going to kill someone if they don't slow down.

If you came and spent 15 minutes out here you would experience for yourself.

Enough is enough.
