I APPRECIATE this is the time of year when some people often lose concentration on the roads and make a mistake. That’s understandable. But sheer recklessness isn’t.

We were in stationary traffic (in the left hand lane) at the lights on the East Lancs Road’s junction with Green Leach Lane at Haresfinch, heading towards Windle.

The lights had turned green and we were moving off when a car travelling at frightening speed undertook us on the left hand side. It swerved into Green Leach Lane and then back on to the Lancs. I dread to think what would have happened if it had clipped us.

It’s a shame there aren’t more traffic police on the roads.
