I AM writing in regarding your 'Roundabout Will Open Before Works' article in last week's Ely Standard.

I live on the Cathedral View development in Ely. I am extremely apprehensive about the opening of the Thistle Corner roundabout. Boy racers and scooters already use the road as their own private race track. With the increased congestion it will only be a matter of time before a serious accident occurs.

I have two suggestions regarding the adoption of the roundabout and Road. Barrett should be forced to install road bumps to reduce the traffic speed. The police should be proactively stopping these boy racers. By removing their illegal exhausts and reporting them to their insurance companies (if they are insured, which I doubt) for un-declared modification to their £500 cars.
