“I have requested that the Police deploy mobile speed cameras to try and deter the dangerous driving. Numerous residents, as well as businesses, have expressed concerns

“All three ward councillors have witnessed speeding and we need to try and get this sorted out.”

A Town Street shopkeeper, who asked not to be named, told The Dispatch:

“It’s getting like the Monaco Grand Prix down here – people are driving far too fast in an area that’s used by shoppers during the day and people going to pubs and restaurants on an evening. Something needs to be done before someone is killed

“People need to slow down.”
