Speeding traffic

Signs not prominent all traffic through this 30mph area travel 40mph upwards including lorries, their are a lot of houses and businesses along this stretch of road and each time they pull out onto A21 they take thier lives in their hands. Night time is even worse when lorrys and car's come throgh at 50mph plus nobody pays any attention to the 30mph signs. 30mph road makings need to be prominent, speed camera's to cover north and south need putting back. If your standing on the foot path it's frightening the spèed cars and lorrys hammer through here at. The police have said there is nothing they can do because as soon as they put a speed van on the side of the road everything slows down as motorist warn oncoming cars and lorries, as soon as they go speeds straight back up.
