Maybe we should just stick to the subject of the discussion
Boooo! Come on Steve - what do you drive so we can do analysis?
On the subject in hand - I'm all for it (even though I've got form as a 20mph speed limit breaker). Indeed I remain in favour of a barrier halfway down Byde Street completely eliminating the rat run (this would be a gated barrier still allowing access for emergency vehicles). Having to enter "Lower Bengeo" from one end or the other depending on which side of the barrier you reside should be a small price to pay for safety and the elimination of selfish, speeding, rat-run, BMW* drivers.
* Other brands of sociopathy inducing vehicles are available. Purchase of a BMW does not necessarily guarantee an instant feeling of superiority over, and disregard for, other road users. The British Medical Association does not, however,recommend purchase and/or driving of BMW vehicles if you are already susceptible to being a bit of an arse (although certain models in the range have been shown to have some positive side effects)....
