Nab the trunk road speeders

First published in Letters

INSTEAD of setting up cameras to trap everyday motorists for doing 33mph in a 30 zone the police should focus on trunk roads.

Not for the first time, I have just come within millimetres of being side swiped by a 40-ton UK-registered articulated lorry travelling at a speed undoubtedly over his limit, and drifting well over the double white line.

These truck drivers are a menace yet never seem to be caught. Why?

Further, the A44 between Worcester and Bromyard is probably one of the most dangerous stretches of road in the country, especially the Knightwick junction which cries out for a 50 limit and a double white line, not the layout that currently exists.
