Reader letter: Action needed after three-car smash

editorial image

I live on Godfrey Drive in Ilkeston and was witness to the accident on February 26.

Something seriously needs to be done about this road. We have school double decker buses, Barton buses and school traffic, as well as residents of Godfrey Drive, driving down this road.

I have many times been witness to wing mirrors being smashed off and cars being hit by buses. It’s dangerous. The council needs to either fit speed bumps or change the road to one-way as someone is going to be killed one day.

This latest accident ended up closing the road for two hours at peak school time.

Drivers need to slow down!
