Getting the hump with road’s ‘selfish’ residents
AS AP Cox states in his letter about Westminster Road, these are public roads (Letters, October 12). So 80 people from the Clifton ward appear to want a private road for themselves while continuing to drive down other roads. How selfish.
Westminster Road is one of the widest roads/streets in York, with some of the highest road humps of any street in York; only a fool would drive at any speed down that road.
I guess the residents of The Avenue and Westminster Road will happily drive down Bootham, Water Lane, Rawcliffe Lane and many other residential roads that are jammed with vehicles every day, unlike their roads.
Should all of York’s vehicle-owning, road tax-payers have a vote on who can have their own private road? Or should only the selfish minority decide for themselves?
