Has anyone been to Penegoes and tried t cross the road?? The villiage is on a bend. Cars rarely do the 40MPH speed limit and local youths use it as a race track. Local police are aware of the problem, but nothing seems to be done about it. I am, along with many people that live in the village, concerned about the speed through the village. Surely it can be lowered to 30MPH? as a local i am sick and tired of having my car "bumped into" as i wait for oncomming traffic to clear before i can turn off the main road to park, just like i am sick and tired of dodging death every time i need to cross the road. Children live in the village and to get to the village play round this busy road must be crossed. Traffic levels are rising, i guess due to people holidaying in the UK rather than aroad and it is only going to be a matter of time before som one is killed. Almost every year there is serious accident at the one end of the villiage due to a hidden dip with a turning, drivers who are not local often end up crashing as it looks like the road is clear, but it is not due to the dip and turning, Yet there are no sings. This village is a lovely plce to live, but we have had enough of the speeding and i think most of us agree 40MPH is TOO fast for the village.
