Clampdown on "Boy Racers"

Too fast! Slow down!
Isle of Wight police chief, Tony Hipshoulder, wants to clamp down on what he terms a "modern plague on our beautiful island".

"Over the past few years," said Hipshoulder, "we have been getting an increase in the number of reports of young people tearing along the A3054 between Yarmouth and Newport. Although the speed limit on this road is sixty miles an hour, Shalfleet has a thirty mile an hour restriction, and this is being blatantly ignored. If this carries on, then we are sure that somebody will be hurt."

When police are stationed on Mill Road, word obviously gets around, for nobody speeds through the village.
