AS a resident on Lingholme Road for 42 years, I would like to say how I am in total agreement with Colin Campbell who runs fireplace showroom Instyle Living located next to the blackspot junction and his comments on the constant running of red lights which are causing constant accidents. 

It is only a matter of time before a serious accident takes place and I have witnessed countless crashes over the years caused by drivers not willing to wait until the next change of lights.

There always appears to be debris left on the road side as evidence of the latest smash before a fresh incident occurs. 

Also, accidents seem to happen mostly around the Christmas period. Every year I wonder which part of the festive season an accident will occur in. 

I agree with Colin that a constant fix of lights is not the answer and that speed cameras or even a change to the traffic light system are the way forward.
