Locals assert they are sustaining sleep deprived nights due to child racers.
People staying in 3 of the Glenrothes’s biggest suburban areas have signed up with pressures to contact Fife Council to reduce the rate restriction on a stretch of the B921 twin carriageway.
More compared to 130 individuals from Finglassie, Stenton and also Pitteuchar– every one of which border the course– have signed an application asking for the 70mph limit to be reduced to 50mph between the Bankhead and Southfield roundabouts.
They declare loud exhausts are keeping individuals awake at night, with Peter Ehmann, a homeowner of the Finglassie area, claiming: “The rate limitation is 70mph and also as a result the traffic sound impacts negatively on the quality of life of the many residents whose homes adjoin the B921.
“Another hassle on this already active and loud stretch of roadway are individuals in cars as well as motorbikes with revved-up and very loud engines who downplay using this stretch of road as a makeshift speed track. We feel it is only an issue of time prior to a person is seriously wounded as a result of today rate limit or a fatality occurs.”
However, local authority officers have actually advised councillors to throw away the request, claiming there are no appropriate grounds for cutting the restriction.
Ken Gourlay, the council’s head of transport, stated in a record planned for local participants that only three injury-causing collisions have occurred on the course since 2012, with analysis recommending rate was not a factor in any of them.
Regarding sound, he continued: “No planning problems were troubled the nearby real estate advancements to battle traffic sound from the B921. Over the following couple of years it is expected the boosting variety of electrically powered vehicles will certainly lower the impact of engine sound.”
