  • No freedomf its more a case of the usual aggressive tailgating in poor weather conditions. These idiots never learn. There is no such thing as a dangerous road. It is simply the dangerous drivers that are the problem time and time again.

  • Note none of the above are within the area to be controlled by average speed cameras. So the problems that accidents cause in and around Ipswich will still occur. Average speed cameras Money down the drain

  • Underlying reason......Under Investment in our Roads !, both the A12 and A14 should and need to be upgraded to 3 lane Motorways asap, not to mention dualling the A140 all the way, the lack of investment in our Roads just highlights the fact that most of the money made in the UK is 'siphoned off' at the top through shares bought with inherited wealth !!
