A main road through a Fife town has been likened to a motorway because of speeding drivers.
Dysart resident Tom Nisbet said that a recently-introduced 20mph speed limit on the A955 Normand Road was failing to deter motorists from putting their foot down.
Mr Nisbet, whose property borders the route between Kirkcaldy and the Wemyss villages, has called for measures to be implemented that could catch speeding drivers.
Having had his garden wall rebuilt several times after drivers crashed into his property, Mr Nisbet said that despite the new measures being introduced just weeks ago, motorists were failing to slow down.
Calling on more to be done, he said: “I want to see people getting caught speeding.
“I don’t even care how they are going to do it.
“If I am cutting my hedge I could step on to the road for a second and be killed.
“This is not the M8, this is where we live.
“I’ve had enough. I don’t want to live next to a dual carriageway.”
Town councillors agreed back in October to cut the speed limit on Normand Road from 40mph to just 20 mph.
The move brought the busy route into line with the adjoining Windmill Road, which was also reduced to 20 mph for the opening of the Windmill Community Campus.
Despite the new limit coming into effect, Mr Nisbet added: “People are still belting along.
“I really hope that this is not all that they are going to do.
“It has not changed people’s speed at all. They are just carrying on.”
Murray Hannah, Fife Council service manager, said that Normand Road would be surveyed with the new speed limit now in place.
“Following the introduction of a new speed limit, a traffic speed survey is usually undertaken to gauge its effectiveness and we will be arranging this once drivers have had a reasonable time to adjust their response to the new limit.
“In addition to providing a raised pedestrian crossing at the school, which will also help to calm traffic, we will be erecting a number of repeater speed limit signs to reinforce the new limit.”
