  1. i am gald no one was killed but shenley lane is a dual carriagway with no sharp corners or sudden hazards. At the weekend and night it is always pretty quiet with low traffic volumes and no traffic lights.
    So why do people have accidents on it??

  2. Probably because some drivers are not capable of driving within the speed limit… thats not just at night and weekends though, its all the time. I have seen cars doing what i would estimate at around 50mph on the road…that has parked cars, shops, crossings, side roads, children playing next to and schools to mention some of the obvious dangers.
