The sooner we get CCTV on roads, the better

Dear Sir,

Much has been printed and said about the Drive for Change initiative, with many positive ideas put forward.

I would like to point out another area of concern which puts every driver at risk, and that is the blatant disregard for traffic signals by bike riders and cars alike.

On Monday morning, I was driving my granddaughter to school along Front Street at about 7.55am.

The traffic lights turned red at the intersection with Court Street and I came to a stop.

However, on my right, not one but three cycles carried on at top speed as if no signal was there at all.

The sooner CCTV coverage is implemented, the better.

Susan Black
