Speed measures

The potholes in the tops and at the edges of the speed measures are causing drivers and cyclists alike to take evasive action to avoid hitting them directly. This results in heightened risks of collision and possible loss of control in adverse weather conditions. I’ve lived here long enough to remember the little lad killed by a motorist not two hundred meters along this section of road and if something similar were to happen, there had better not be any reason to blame these measures.

  • Herts County Council can’t be bothered to even visit the site before reaching the conclusion there is not an issue with the speed measures. The tops of some of the speed humps are severely trenches and the edges are pitted, making transversing them extremely violent, even at as low as 5mph, in anything other than a Bentley. It’s ridiculously shortsighted to claim they don’t need repair and makes one wonder what other part of the County Watford residents Taxes are being spent.
