Regular excessive speeding at night

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 23:17, Sat 28 December 2019

Sent to Bolton Borough Council 3 minutes later

Over the last couple of years there has been a large increase in high powered cars speeding up Devonshire road in the early evening and at night, you can clearly hear the cars wheel spinning at the Give way as they put their foot down, i was speaking to a few other neighbours and they have all noticed this and are expressing concern its only a matter of time before someone gets hurt, this is a dense residential area with lots of schools in close proximity, can the council please do something about, or possibly carry out a proper monitoring session, so you can get an idea of the problem and look into some sort of remedy ie speed bumps etc, signs have been put up but these seem to have no effect. This has been decreed by the council to be a 20 mph zone - cars and mopeds, are clearly travelling well in excess of this limit - I just hope that someone accepts responsibility and sorts this out before a someone is seriously injured. In the past month there have been 3 crashes at the give way junction which i have personally witnessed, the police were in attendance at 2 of these, all cars involved were high end cars ie BMW, AUDI
