  1. Speeding no doubt this area is chaotic with cars speeding along about time cameras were placed along this Rd, getting out of Drapers Close is so dangerous with the speed of cars coming from Broadstairs not many adhere to 30mph

    • Yeah there is definitely been a huge rise in people driving extremely aggressively lately round the whole area. I see the speeds they are driving at and worry for civilians and animals as well
