    How many times do we need to tell drivers to slow down.

    We live in a society of “shut the gate after the horse has gone.”

    I know that junction quite well as I used to live on Tatem’s Hill, and I cannot for the life of me understand how two vehicles (presumably travelling in opposite directions?) managed to collide there without SOMEone simply getting it badly wrong. I’ll be interested to hear any update on this one…..
