Why are all the comments so negative? The council are clearly trying to improve the situation.
Need more than a sign clearly the one above doesn’t work. It needs traffic calming measures entering the 30mph limit
Why can't we adopt the traffic light system that is common in France and other European countries. A set of traffic lights with speed sensors; when a vehicle approaches travelling above 30mph the lights change to red. Cameras on the lights record anyone that jumps the red light and a £100 fine and 3 points follow. Self financing and safe. No need for traffic calming chicanes, rumble strips or speed bumps. Simple.
Is it a road. More like a racing track.
Is there any evidence to show that putting Please Drive Carefully on road signs alters the speed of vehicles?
Well we have the Speed Indicator Device, the Police sign and the Police actively using their new equipment to catch and punish speeders where we have Speedwatch. What we need is more volunteers to join the Speedwatch and a speed camera just a few yards further on. But that is an issue for Avon & Somerset.
If your interested here is the data of the actual speeds recorded for the 30mph on Langport road.......https://www.pf-stc.uk/download/langport-rd-25th-july-4th-august.pdf
They could have given the top one a clean whilst they were there, or is that another department all together.
No one does 30 along there

Very impressive. Not so brilliant here in South Devon, where recycling is limited and rarely collected on the due date (fortnightly) and sometimes never actually picked up.
It would be amazing if it was actually collected!!
Thursday collections started this month both dates missed & still waiting for collection from last Thursday. Very poor service which is not being delivered. Such a fundamental change to collections should not gave happened until staff resources were in place. Customers are expected to take recycling to a recycling centre (not open in Somerton on Mondays or tuesdays) or wait until the following week's collection. The council tax we pay is high & the service poor.

The mist didn’t last long as the sun was unusually strong for that hour, of that day. ... See MoreSee Less

Personally I think the soft approach isn’t going to work a small amount of children in this town are causing havoc and something should be done my kids don’t want to go to the big park because of some of the big kids .
Whoever did it is completely rubbish at graffiti 🙄…. They should be doubly chastised for being hopeless.
Seriously what are they thinking doing that. It’s not big nor cleaver, little rats or teenage rats ruining it for future generations!!!!! When I take my bambino’s up there and see any little turd or even grown up doing that lesson will be learned. Disgusting
I believe Archies Extra who meet up there on a Thursday evening are trying to find funding for things like this.
Since it is for the kids anyhow why not let the kids do proper graffiti under supervision from a graffiti artist? Otherwise this will invite constant new rubbish on it...let the kids owe it..
