We live in a mainly linear village with masses of through traffic of all shapes and sizes. The village lies on a popular truck route to the A303 and is also in a rural setting with much modern heavy agricultural traffic. There is a footpath on one side, extremely narrow in places. A fairly recent traffic calming scheme introduced a number of chicanes in an attempt to slow traffic but has had the unintended consequence of tempting traffic to sprint between the chicanes. Parked cars down one side reduce traffic to single lane which exacerbates the sprinting. At the top of the village we have a VC Primary School and there has been a suggestion that a 20mph limit might be imposed there but no action so far.
