There was yet another incident on the A52 in Bramcote this Friday night on the stretch approaching the Sherwin Arms Roundabout, involving up to 10 vehicles being damaged, over a 100 yard stretch, both on the road and parked on Resident’s frontages. Two vehicles were written off in this incident but thankfully no one was seriously injured – miraculously!!
It appears that two cars were racing and one lost control, mounted the pavement, resulting in one sign being totally demolished, (see photo) a lamppost being completely sheered off and other sign damage. The driver and passenger of one of the vehicles fled the scene. Had anyone been on the pavement at the time, there would have almost certainly have been a fatality.
Hopefully this latest incident will be taken into account, and together with my Parliamentary Petition, and previous incidents, the need for some form of Speed Control is now more pressing than ever.
