This is supposed to be a traffic calmed area; cars are continuously using Sylvan Drive as a rat run, parking inconsiderately and not waiting for vehicles before proceeding. Give way signs or an adjusted speed limit would be desirable - 44mph was seen on the illuminated sign last week along with many road rage incidents. I have see children almost hit by cars along with many near misses. The Highway Code states “ Whilst passing parked cars on a road with good clearance from both the parked cars and the right hand side of the road, provide 1 metre clearance from the parked cars. In the event a car door should open from one of the parked vehicles, 1 metre clearance should eliminate a potential accident.” this never happens on Sylvan Drive and this needs addressing before someone is seriously injured.
