We live on the edge of the New Thundersley estate, very close to the A130 between Sadlers and the A127. We regularly hear motorbikes screaming along that stretch of the road at all times of the day and night, and have experienced it for ourselves when driving that stretch (and other roads, it has to be said).

Far too many drivers of all types think that speed limits do not apply to them, and I'm afraid, that this applies in particular to a large number of motor bike riders. It is an all too common occurrence for a bike to go flying past you at upwards of 80 mph. I'd suggest that some strategically placed speed cameras along this stretch of the A130 might prove to be of benefit.

80mph. That's nothing. When I had my Yamaha R6, I went 150mph down the M25. I tried to max it out by going 170-180mph but had to slow down for traffic.

Speed doesn't in itself cause an accident. It is, however, the easiest element to measure (and generate revenue) by a lazy police force., hence why they make such an issue of it.

If people stopped banging on about speed and actually addressed the real issues that cause accidents the roads would be a hell of a lot safer.

Best wishes to those involved.

Rayleigh mum says...

it happened earlier than 4.10
we were caught in the tailback from 4pm, and the police were already there with the road cordoned off

Hope both bikers are ok. ALL road users need to watch out for bikers!
