    County council workmen have almost finished a much needed safety scheme to slow traffic on a busy Ormskirk road in a bid to make it safer for all.

    Cottage Lane's a well known short cut for Southport traffic and was the scene of a novel road safety initiative by Asmall School pupils a year ago in a bid to remind drivers of the 20 limit: http://www.qlocal.co.uk/ormskirk/new...s-55018664.htm.

    The past few days has seen the installation of 11 new traffic calming humps with '20' signs painted in vivid red squares on the road to and from Asmall Lane and the Cottage Lane junction with County Road.

    Let's hope drivers DO see red and 'get the hump' after these latest road safety improvements...

    Should have made better use of the tarmac,by repairing the roads,making the roads safer for a driver to keep control of the vehicle on them,instead of having to continually swerve or brake to avoid all the potholes that are still there,thereby damaging a vehicles suspension,causing punctures,and damaging the tracking of the tyres.

    Yes, could have filled a few potholes with that tarmac, looking at the pics would appear that this road or part of, has been recently resurfaced, now the council are obviously afraid that drivers might use it, so put the deterrence in and keep the traffic away.

    So the councils have no money but they manage to find the funds to put humps on roads.
    Men who could be usefully employed repairing dangerous roads are instead wasting time money and scarce resources to create nuisance and damage causing obstructions.

    And they now want to put an extra 5% on your council tax bills as well.....probably help paying towards installing these unwanted speed humps onto most roads.......Chocolate teapots spring to mind,as they are about as much use.
