Have your say
I drive in and out of this junction every day and its often very busy so yes please drive/ride carefully !Frankie, yes think bike but also can the minority of bikers who think speed limits and the highway code dont apply to them please think about all road users and no just their own selfishness.... I watched a young lad on a bike overtaking cars way in excess of the limit on Walney Road/Park road on Wed morning this week causing oncoming cars to swerve out of the way, bikers like him give proper bikers a bad name.Have a quick recovery Miss Biker !
