We do not have any traffic calming measures

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.

Where will the next vehicle come to rest?

Oxford Mail: Nurse got me through some difficult times

11:00am Thursday 5th March 2015

RECENTLY, probably in the hours of darkness, athe driver of a bright blue vehicle drove across the grass verge and into my newly rebuilt driveway wall opposite the Red Cow in Chesterton, causing considerable damage. There were no witnesses but there is paint residue on the bricks and the stonework. I would have thought so much more of that driver if he or she had come to the door and acknowledged what had happened.

Don't expect to get a receipt, apparently

WE had a boiler replaced by a small plumbing firm from Banbury. I asked for a receipt for the two cheques I issued, the warranties for the boiler and work done as well as the building regulations certificate.

Your report omits the main point of my speech

YOUR report on fees for care on February 25 has a nice picture of me, but omits the main point of my three-minute speech to the county council cabinet the previous day.

Why is my post delivered as late as 5.30pm?

ONCE upon a time, you could almost tell the time of day by the delivery of post Royal Mail made in my road.

Seeing PC105 on his bike brought back memories

I WAS interested to see the letter from Mrs Parkinson, her late husband Ken taught me to ride a motorcycle, the one shown in the picture.

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?
