PLEASE can I urge everyone to take more care on the roads and slow down, especially in the run up to Christmas.

Every day I see at least one driver race through traffic lights at busy junctions.

They don’t realise the carnage they could cause.

These selfish motorists could crash into another vehicle or run over a pedestrian.

Imagine the trauma a family could face losing a loved one just because of one careless moment.

Why don’t we fit CCTV cameras to all busy junctions so these reckless drivers can be caught and prosecuted?

It is about time drivers took more responsibility and slowed down.

The speeding vehicles I have seen are not just cars but often vans and HGVs.

When the traffic lights are on red, stop.

It will only take a few minutes before they change and could mean the difference between life and death for someone.
