Posted by Barnaby Start on

This week a community in Glasgow have been successful in getting speed bumps fitted as part of their battle against boy racers, who have been making their roads dangerous for children by speeding.   The residents of the street had recently had a new cycle path installed that would allow local children to cycle in safety, however to get to this cycle path they would need to cross a main road.
