Forty Foot Road: What you said
Greg Chapman, from New Road, Ramsey, said: The main issue about this road is that hardly anyone sticks to the 50mph limit. I do, and I am nearly always overtaken, often at high speed. Therefore, I think an average speed camera system is the best option.

* David Dearden from Ramsey, said: "In reality a physical barrier is the only way to stop cars going into the water and the occupants from drowning. Even at 30mph, you can lose control of a vehicle and are just as likely to end up in the water.
When it comes to cost, Cambridgeshire County Council says a conservative estimate for safety barriers along the 7.6 km of the bank is £898,000. This cost takes into account the nature of the bank and the necessity to use special construction techniques.
However, according to The Department of Transport, the cost of a single fatal accident is £1,384,463. So, given five recent fatalities, cost is no longer an issue."
