I HAVE to get on my soap box about speeding motorist.
I live in Bridge Road, Sutton Bridge. On Sunday July 12, my cat Harley was run over by a speeding motorcyclist.
This is the second cat that we have lost in two years, the first one Scuttle, was only a year old, Harley was three.
It's not the fact that my cat was killed, as they don't have any road sense and accidents happen, it's the fact that this rider was doing well over the speed limit.

A few years ago they put traffic islands though Sutton Bridge to slow the speeders down, this hasn't happened.

When is this going to stop? It's only a matter of time before a child or an elderly person is killed.
I think the money used to pay for these traffic islands could have been put to better use such as paying for a PCSO or a speed camera.
