No cops or speed cameras so people drive however they like!

Drove this road last night (and further afield) and back on a wet evening and drivers where overtaking us where-ever they could, driving at least at and/or over the limits, and the amount sitting up everyones rears with no space to breath is appalling. Time for more police in the BOP and speed cameras everywhere, as people simply won’t drive to the laws or to the conditions... it’s a nightmare out on our roads on a daily basis. Also time for fines for causing crashes and prison ti e for dangerous driving causing harm and/or death - it’s time to get tough!
