Disregard for no access signage.

There are clear signs indicating this is an access only road and as such a driver is committing a driving offence. He is either not paying attention or does not understand fully the highway code. If neither of these are the case the he is showing a blatant disregard of the highway code. Whichever may be the case I feel some education is warranted. We have experienced people being knocked off motorbikes and pets being run over and killed by drivers illegally using Springfield Avenue as a ‘cut through’. we have had one of our much loved cats run over and killed by one such driver.

This is a regular daily occurrence and more evidence can be provided.
