SPEEDWATCH volunteers say a busy rural causeway is being blighted by dangerous illegal races and careless drivers.

Peter Pike, who volunteers for Layer de le Haye Community Speedwatch, says regular checks along the B1026 through Layer and Abberton reveal the true extent of the problem.

He said many drivers flout the 30mph sped limit.

“We find many drivers are just totally unaware of their surroundings and totally unaware of the speed limit,” he said.

“This time of year and every night a number of us contact the police about vehicles racing up and down the road.
