Had my daily walk today again, [ yes out again Anne ], and in the same time frame as Sunday, when I counted 60 vehicles on the road, there was 65 whilst on Tues the comparative count was approx 62. Although, without stopping every vehicle to prove their legitimate reason for travel, it does raise the question in my mind that with the food markets and pharmacies shut today where were they all going?
Please note those wishing to get onto an argument re the rights and wrongs this is just an observation of mine you don't have to prove to me why you were out and about in your vehicle.
Went for a 25 minute walk on Sunday along Guppy Rd between Tait Drive and Cornwall Rd and counted 60 vehicles. Slower walk of 33 minutes on Tuesday resulted in a count of 84 vehicles and on both days many had 2 or more passengers. It would appear that many folk are just ignoring the common sense advice. Anyone else noticed the volume of traffic seems high given the circumstances?
