Residents of a West Cumbria village are becoming increasingly concerned at speeding vehicles that pass through, putting people and property at risk.
- Speeding carries with it a greater risk of losing car control, and increases the likelihood and severity of accidents when they occur.
A resident who didn't want to be named said: "Moor Row wasn't designed for the amount of traffic that passes through it on a daily basis. My car was recently hit by a motorist trying to squeeze through an impossible gap - what if it was a child?
"Some drivers don't seem to care about the village and are intent on going from 'A' to 'B' at the quickest speed possible. We're all sick of it, and are now considering some direct action in an attempt to highlight the problem.
"We've been promised some speed bumps to slow down traffic. We've been asking for years, and are always told their arrival is imminent. We've waited long enough. If the council won't act, we will."
Little Ireland understands that residents are considering a number of responses to the traffic problem affecting the village - from a blockade with tractors and wheelie bins, to a slow walk.
