DRIVING: Streets are a ‘race track’

Is Ashington the speeding capital of Northumberland?

There seems to be drivers oblivious to limits, especially in Wansbeck Road, Green Lane and Briardene, not to mention the ‘race track’, AKA Blackthorn Way, the rat-run to Guide Post.

Traffic has also been observed using this route that exceeds the 7.5-tonne limit.

As for parking, it appears any double-line will do, or outside a gym, take-away, newsagent, bus stop or Argos, without fear of getting a ticket. Where are the wardens?
