Police conduct speed checks on road where two people died in just five days

Evesham Editorial 3rd Oct, 2017   0

POLICE have this afternoon carried out speed checks along a road which claimed the lives of two people in just five days.

Officers from West Mercia Police have been using their speed gun to check the speed of cars travelling along Buckle Street, near Honeybourne.

Between Thursday, September 14 and Tuesday, September 19 two people were killed along the stretch of road close to the Bidford Gliding & Flying Club.

The first tragic incident involved a 16-year-old male cyclist who was killed after he was involved in a crash with a car.




In the second incident a 21-year-old man died after his car crashed into a tree and caught fire.

A concerned Buckle Street resident has previously told the Observer council chiefs need to urgently carry out a safety review of the ‘dangerous’ road following the two tragic deaths.


Manda Cook believes that the road could be made safer by reducing the speed limit from 60mph to 50mph, and by installing new road signs to warn drivers of the windy bends and visibility blind spots.
