Speeding over Houghton crossing

Reported via desktop in the Damaged / Missing / Facing Wrong Way category anonymously at 15:46, Wed 11 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council less than a minute later. ref: 2382695.

Cars coming down the road from Hanging Houghton are going fast not slowing down over Houghton crossing which is used by cyclists/ pedestrians who are using the Brampton Valley Way. This area has become very busy particularly with the “lockdown” in March, it remains very busy with the small car park full, cars parking on the side of road, in front farm gates. There are no warning signs to warn people driving that cyclists/ pedestrians are crossing. I am very concerned that one day there will be a accident/ fatality with a car versus cyclists. Perhaps putting a sign up before the crossing could alleviate the problem
