Letter: Regarding residents fed up of dangerous driving

Date published: 09 July 2018

Dear Editor. 

During this fine weather am I the only one being kept awake during the early hours every day by the sound of high powered cars revving engines, and in one case making the car 'back fire'?

There seems to be a small number of fools who think the loudness of their cars is in some way in ratio to their prowess as a 'big man', for it is indeed boy racers who are doing this along Manchester Road, past the site of a very horrible incident earlier this year.

I too will be asking for support at the next Castleton Forum for the police, and the community, to take action to end the terrorizing of pedestrians and other drivers by these law breakers.

Can I urge other areas of Rochdale to make their voices heard before yet another tragic incident?

Yours faithfully

A Concerned Resident of Castleton
