Would light make it better?

2:57pm Wednesday 4th December 2013

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?
