MORE than 10 years ago you published a letter from me. In it I referred to a German Autobahn similar to the A14. I said: "... fewer accidents and better traffic flow. What was done? It was very simple and low cost. Signs were put up prohibiting lorries from overtaking."

And the German Autobahn police are very strict about the distance between lorries. It must be at least 50m.

Having visited St Ives several times since the major accident on the A14 when the then Chief Constable said something would be done, I think all users of this road will be saying "we are still waiting".
