Obstruction (Lack of, needs one erecting)

Reported by Simon Cook at 12:31, Wednesday 15 July 2020

Dear Sir/Madam, I sent the following message to Daventry DC but they have pointed me towards you:- I am mailing to report what could be quite a serious safety concern, although a regular occurance I have noticed the following incidents happening more frequent in just the past 2 weeks alone, it concerns the footpath adjacent to my property that joins Ash Close to Peartree Close, on Ashby Fields, Daventry, most evenings between 2200hrs & midnight a moped is using the FOOTPATH as a cut through. As its a sloping footpath we have noticed children using it to go up and down on their scooters, not a problem of them using it but they have gone down at speed with no way of stopping at the bottom until they are into the roadway, it's not a busy close but traffic does come and go and a child zooming into the road is not what people will be expecting, we have said to them to be careful but they are kids after all, and continue to live dangerously. its only a matter of time before they run into or are run over by a car/van. Finally, last weekend we were out gardening and a cyclist (the same one who comes down every day on his way home from work) came down at speed as he usually does and nearly knocked over the postman who was doing his rounds. we did shout out to him, he briefly turned round but kept on going. there is a yellow post at the top to stop cars using it, but I believe in the interests of the safety of the public, it needs a staggered barrier installed before someone is seriously injured by car or an inconsiderate Cyclist/moped user. I didn't know how to inform you of this so apologies if it's the wrong way, but I am hopeful someone will pick it up and it will be passed onto the relevant person/department. I look forward to your response to this. Kind regards Simon Cook
