READERS have told us which roads in and around Sutton should have a speed camera.
There have been numerous occasions this year where drivers have decided to ignore speed limits.
In some cases, motorists in the county had been caught travelling at speeds up to three times higher than the legal limit.
So recently we asked people on Facebook which roads in Sutton they would like to see a speed camera introduced in.
Below are roads that were mentioned by residents:
1. Gander Green Lane
Gander Green Lane was mentioned several times by our readers, with complaints of the road being used as a rat run.
Sandra Channon said: “It’s so bad between the A217 and A24. We have had people fighting outside our house at the traffic control zooming through and not giving way.”
Another reader agreed with Sandra, she said: “l live near the St Anthony’s end and have been here 33-years.
“It’s now used as a rat run, oh let’s see who can get through the width restrictors the quickest.”
2. Wrythe Lane
Wrythe Lane has recently seen dangerous driving after a motorcyclist tragically died following a crash on August 5.
Neil Forsyth compared the road to a “race track.”
Readers agreed that reckless drivers are seen quite often on Bishopsford Road.
Sue Walter said: “It’s a death trap waiting to happen. I live down this road and watch idiots driving like maniacs.
“Its awful to watch.”
Another reader said: “The cars are always speeding night and day on the top end of Green Wrythe Lane from Bishopsford Road.”
4. Thorton Road
Readers say drivers often speed more than 40mph “despite 20mph painted on the road.”
Tracey Taylor said: “Some nights I lay waiting for the crash, its going to happen, just surprised it hasn’t already.”
In response, another reader said: “You take your life in your hands trying to cross the road or pull out.”
5. Hamilton Avenue
Lynn Jackson said: “People zoom down it as a cut through.”
Others also mentioned Hamilton Avenue.
6. Downs Road
Jason Hopkins said he would like to see pedestrianisation and tridents only.
7. Worcester Park High Street
Our top fan Jackie Walter said: Worcester Park High Street needs a speed camera so that people register that “cars can barely get out of 1st gear.”

8. Throwley Way
11. Sutton Common Road
13. Green Wrythe lane
12. Diamond jubilee way
