Have your say

I read in the Saturday Echo about the speed reduction and cameras  for the A19.

I’ve said for years to stop the daily pile-ups on this road, from the Tyne Tunnel to the Tees fly-over the speed limit should be 50 mph, speed cameras at the black spots can only enforce

this.

Towns around the A19, such as Seaham, become a car park on pile-up days in this area as drivers/sat navs look for short cuts.

Get the speed down.
