First published in Letters

I AM writing concerning your story about traffic speed in Kennington (September 2).

Could I point out that there is a 30mph limit in all of Kennington. What we do not have in Upper Road is any traffic calming measures, i.e. road humps or speed cushions.

Perhaps the inconsiderate motorists who speed in built-up areas would feel differently had they caused or been involved in an accident that caused injury or worse.

Speeding motorists have me very worried

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

I am writing concerning the speed that motorists and motorcyclists use on the road at the rear of our home.

This makes a mockery of government's pledge

Recently we received a note from the postman asking us to pick up a package from the main post office.

I'm glad so many cyclists were caught out

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

IT’s good to see 300 cyclists caught cycling without lights being fined.

Can we really say this is a transparent society?

As a widowed pensioner aged 92, I feel bound to comment on two items in the news this week.

A big thank you to all hospital staff for looking after us so well

Oxford Mail:

Having read so many articles in the national newspapers regarding patients receiving sometimes quite appalling service in their local hospitals, how lucky we are in Oxfordshire to receive such wonderful service at the John Radcliffe Hospital, The Churchill Hospital and also the Nuffield Hospital.

To the writer. Speak with your local police contact in Kennington and organise a local meeting of residents. You will soon then get some action from the city council. Just accepting a 30mph and putting up with idiots who do not observe it will get you nowhere in the short or long term .

Why would the city council have anything to do with with what happens over the border in Kennington?
