On Cedar Road? Come on... you couldn't get up to the kind of speeds you need to roll a car on Cedar Road, surely?! Are Kia's inherently unstable or something?

This was an accident waiting to happen. Commuters park all day on both sides of Cedar Road, leaving little space for cars to pass. Other drivers use it as a rat-run, often taking no account of the speed humps. Driving off your driveway is becoming more and more dangerous as vision is restricted by parked vehicles. Other areas in Watford close to stations have controlled parking and surely it is time that this was introduced in Cedar Road, before another accident occurs.

This proves that traffic "calming" measures don't work. Cedar Road was one of the first roads, along with Llamas and Watford Field Roads and one other that escapes me, to be "calmed". My experience is that drivers concentrate on the upcoming obstacle at the expense of their concentration on the traffic flow. Woodmere Avenue traffic "calming" measures? That went well didn't it?
Is it true that a road hump outside Bromet School in Oxhey road was removed/re-aligned. If so;why? I wonder who lives near there.

I honestly couldn't care less....Car drivers are causing pollution and mayhem and they are all inherently selfish and evil.
