From Ian Pratt, Ryde:

We are being advised by the government to stay at home during this lockdown.

However, when I am out taking my daily exercise I see far more cars on the roads than in the first lockdown.

Where are they all going, and why the rush?

Most drivers seem to regard the speed limits as a minimum not a maximum and in Appley Road, where I live, cars, vans and lorries regularly go past at 40-50 mph and sometimes faster.

Can the police not do more speed checks?
