THE EDITOR, Sir:
Residents of Russell Heights, Barbican, are suffering not from the usual night noises from sound systems, thanks to the vigilance of the police, but from the noise from the drivers of speeding motor vehicles who see this road as a racetrack. The noise is deafening and sometimes frightening.
This noise has at times caused us to jump up out of our sleep. At the time of writing, it is 5:45 p.m. and one of those souped-up vehicles just flew past, causing my heart to race. This situation is getting worse and there is nobody to whom we can appeal for help.
The talk today is about human rights, Mr Editor. I believe citizens of this road have the right to to live without this abuse from uncaring motorists. Many of us are senior citizens, and for us to face the rest of our lives suffering in this situation is disheartening.
