Kidsgrove Bank residents are calling for speed cameras to be installed on Kidsgrove Bank, following the accident which took place last week in which a black Corsa hit a telegraph pole and lamppost. It is not known if speed was a cause of the accident, however some Kidsgrove residents believe that speed can be an issue on this road.
This is always an emotive subject and reports can be found that support both sides of the argument. Some people argue that speed perception tends to be higher than the actual value and its poor driving skills and not always speed that causes issues. It will be interesting to see what the Police conclude to be the cause of this accident. At the moment it is hard to see anyone investing in cameras when agencies are in discussions about who actually foots the operational costs for these?
