These are the worst roads in Sutton for speeding

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.”
