This is my street too
I HAVE never written to The Press before, but am becoming irritated by the letters about the selfish people of Westminster Road.
Whenever I say that I live in Westminster Road, people assume I am part of the group fighting for closure of our street.
In response to letters by AP Cox and Paul Cooper, I and several of my neighbours agree with what they say.
Westminster Road is a public right of way, and every car driver who pays road tax has the right to drive down any public highway.
Our road does have traffic flowing down, not at excess speed, because we have some of the highest bumps.
The busiest times of day are when the children are being dropped off and picked up from St Peter’s School, which was here long before our houses and these cars are in the street for five minutes.
This same group of people imposed residents’ only parking on all of us, for which there was no need.
I have lived here for more than 40 years and traffic has increased, but this is happening all over the city.
What do these residents expect with a through road? Maybe they should all move and go to live in a cul-de-sac. What would they complain of then? Children playing in the street?
Name supplied, Westminster Road Clifton, York.
