    Call for speed camera after road traffic accidents on busy Lancashire road

    By David Brown on September 8, 2010

    Councillors have called for an urgent review of safety on a stretch of Lancashire road following a road traffic accident which killed 45-year-old motorcyclist Michael Veevers, reports the Lancashire Telegraph.

    Mr Veevers died in Royal Preston Hospital after Monday’s tragic collision, while his son Dean, 19, is in a stable condition at Royal Blackburn Hospital.

    In the past five years there have been 22 accidents and 39 casualties on Burnley Road, Bacup, which has many blind bends and brows.

    The casualties include two children and a cyclist.

    Lancashire County Council said the latest accident occurred in June when two adults were left with serious injuries.

    Local councillor Jimmy Eaton said: “There have been a number of accidents. It is a very, very busy road. Something needs to be done about it.
    “I would love to see a fixed speed camera.”

    Councillor Peter Sheen said: “Unfortunately by the Deerplay Inn there are no speed restrictions. Road safety is a frustrating area as a ward councilor, and a speed restriction at the Deerplay would help.”
