Speeding maniacs using Guernsey roads as a racing track

TO WHOM it may concern:

I am sure you must be aware of the problems we Guernsey people have to endure with the excruciating noise from youngsters racing their motorbikes and cars.

If not, then I would like to bring this to your attention.

These speeding maniacs are literally using Guernsey roads as a racing track, tearing around at breakneck speed and denying us our right to live in peace.

One Saturday at 1.20am, from my garden, I witnessed two cars racing past me along the entire length of the seafront, from Bulwer Avenue to Salerie Corner.

On another occasion, I also witnessed a speeding teenager come off his motorbike outside the Co-op at the Longstore.

Having spoken to a number of residents in the area, we all agree that since lockdown, the situation has worsened considerably and the excessive noise and speed of these machines has been totally unbearable and frightening, putting the lives of islanders at risk by being mowed down.

These youngsters are completely ignoring the speed limits and seem totally unaware of the consequences of their actions. Instead, they rely on the fact that they are continually able to get away with it regardless.

In writing this letter, I hope that the police take note by enforcing the law and have the means to make our community a safer place for everyone.

PAT,

Richmond.
