AS a frequent user of Brimstage Road I am completely in agreement with Peter Mason's campaign to reduce the speed limit of 50mph and wrote to the council last year asking them to review it – I didn't get a reply.

All the members of the cross-party panel should be compelled to take the police speed awareness course.

I have been tailgated and then overtaken by an irate motorist who then slowed down in front of me, lowered his window and pointed at the 50mph sign.

It seems that there are drivers who understand that the sign indicates an obligation to drive at that speed.
