As a driver who uses the Exeter St/Buxton/Upper Hamilton road junction, I am concerned that on a regular basis drivers are being forced to slow down or stop by virtue of children playing football etc in the road.
Apart from the obvious dangers of them causing or being involved in an accident, their manner of playing could well cause damage to local properties and parked cars.
Playing in the road is in fact an offence if it causes annoyance to residents or other road users, created as a bye-law by the local council.
If the problem persists I will be reporting the problem to our neighbourhood policing team and would urge others to do likewise before the inevitable happens. Our local PCSO is Erika Harkness and can be reached on 0845 60 70 999.
