SPEED OF VEHICLES IN LIPHOOK
- Angry of Liphook (1st Sep 2019 @ 15:18:25)

I am so sick and tired of seeing speeding vehicles racing through our lovely village. It doesn't seem to matter which approach road is used, so many drivers think it's a flipping race track. I regularly see cars speeding up and down Headley Road and London Road at 50-60mph, some even faster than that. Add to that the HUGE farm vehicles that crash and bash their way around the village and it doesn't make for a safe place!

I know there will be some people that will respond to this message with some stupid, sarcastic comments but I don't care - I'm seriously fed up of these idiots that race around with NO REGARD for pedestrians, cyclists and other road users. And local business owners with your details on your vans, etc, do you really want to be named and shamed?

The schools will be reopening next week so there will be lots of children of all ages walking to and from school. Let's hope they keep safe and are not victims of selfish idiots who obviously cannot read road signs.

The flashing mph signs are a total waste of time, I don't even know they're moved around the village because they are totally ineffective.

We should all remember that it is a PRIVILEGE to be able to drive and own a car. Please don't be the cause of an accident that could ruin multiple lives.

I work in Liphook Mobility so I see a lot of traffic passing through as we’re in the centre of liphook (opposite the Anchor) and the main culprits are tractors...Yes I know hard to believe but they go bombing along out there with no care, they bounce as they have to stop at the zebra crossing because they're going to fast and some have huge trailers on the back, god knows how they don't hit anyone!

Fully agree! I live on Headley Road and some of the speeds i have seen combined with the every growing line of unbroken parked cars is scary!

Heavy vehicles racing up Tower Road in violation to a weight restriction sign at both ends of the road. Unfortunately the sign at the junction of Tower Road and London Road is buried in the overgrown hedge belonging to Radford Court and cannot be seen at all. However even if it was in clear view there is nobody to enforce the regulations so we are all wasting our time complaining about speeding vehicles in the village etc.

With new school term and some of the Bohunt Children now coming by train and having to walk through the village, this could be even more dangerous or it might slow the traffic down and cause more jams.

If you can get the tractors' number plates, you could ring Pete Davey in Rogate and see if they're his workers. Not many other contractors work the land round here

And parents, do your bit. Spy on the way your kids are behaving.

I was driving very slowly up the rise of Station Road past the station on Thursday afternoon when several young boys darted out to cross without any warning. They were lucky it was me, because I am very aware and careful, but had someone been turning round the bend from the railway bridge and into Station Road and accelerating, it might have been another story.

Come on trolls, make some smart comments. But t remember it could be your child or grandchild, and then it will be no laughing matter.

I've long gone on about the blatant disregard for the speed limits around liphook, used to walk round it every morning, don't think there was ever a time I didn't see anyone speeding.

London Road and Headley Road are particularly bad.

The signs around Radford Court aren't a surprise, they don't maintain the hedging even though it was part of the planning requirements. Caretaker says its because they have to charge the residents and there's other things they also have to stump up for.

Also want to say that as a parent of a child at Liphook Infant School (and yes we do drill into him road safety), that the school has made several notifications to parents in the last year to take extra care, there have been many near misses at the Zebra Crossing.

I overheard one of the ladies who works at the station say that an extra 500 or so children were coming into liphook by train because of the collapse of the coach service from Haslemere etc. that's a lot of children...!

I have only lived in Liphook for a few years but during that time I have witnessed an increase in traffic flow especially HGV and works vans. I live in Station Road and it is getting increasingly dangerous to try to cross the road. Honestly the traffic races down there and drivers slam on their brakes when they reach the Portsmouth road.

Someone is going to get killed or seriously hurt if it continues. Why are there no traffic calming measures in place? It shows an appalling lack of care by the Council.

If they build a lot more houses it will only get worse.

The problem isn't the Council IT'S THE CARELESS & THOUGHTLESS DRIVERS - BE SENSIBLE _ SLOW DOWN & DRIVE WITH SOME THOUGHT _ IT MIGHT BE YOUR CHILD OR RELATIVE IN A POTENTIAL ACCIDENT -

Also tall trucks knock down branches on Haslemere Road which can cause accidents
