Would light make it better?

First published in Letters

I HAVE every sympathy for the families affected by the tragic road accidents on Booth Lane in Middlewich but I wonder if switching the lights back on is the way to go?

I ask this following two incidents of using this road recently.

On Friday morning I drove to Sandbach doing 40mph in the 40 zone but before I had even entered the national speed limit section I was overtaken by two vehicles.

On Sunday evening I drove to Sandbach again and was driving at about 45mph in the national speed limit zone, quite frankly that is fast enough in my opinion as it is so dark without the lighting.

Three cars were behind me and none of them overtook me.

I was left wondering, if the road had been lit up would they have stayed behind or overtaken?

i would of still overtaken you being light or being dark 45mph in a 60mph is far to slow your going to be the one causing a accident just speed up so people wouldn't need to overtake

Having just read the totally banal rubbish written by shaunsj2608 it is quite evident that his english is the same as his driving very poor. His comment makes me wonder if he sits on his brains when driving his car.
