Asking criminals not to act like criminals

The A41 in Backford, Cheshire, was closed following a crash involving a private hire vehicle, a cyclist and possibly another vehicle.

Recently, various efforts have been made to reduce the overall speed of traffic along the A41 particularly in the Backford Dip where the collision happened.

New 50mph Please Slow Down flashing signs have been installed in the dip.

Drivers are the only type of criminal whose criminality is dealt with by pleas for nice behaviour. Obviously speed cameras weren’t installed because they would catch tens of thousands of reckless risk takers, and that would be war on the motorist.
