Video footage of a near miss between a police vehicle and an oncoming car has prompted fresh calls for a speed restriction at an Angus hamlet.
The incident was caught on camera on a dash-cam by a motorist driving into Forfar from Kingsmuir.
It was posted, along with footage of other near misses on YouTube by UK Dash Cameras which highlights cases of “bad drivers, crashes and close calls.”
The Angus incident was filmed on April 8 and shows the police car with blue lights flashing hurtling round the Welton Corner, narrowly avoiding a collision.
Local resident Avril Simpson, who has campaigned for years to have the speed limit outside her home reduced, said she had not seen the video footage but was not surprised.
Mrs Simpson, 81, who has lived in the area for 20 years, said: “I have campaigned for years to get the limit reduced to 30 miles per hour.
“I appreciate this was a police vehicle responding to an emergency, but I have seen this before with a police van when it came racing down from Kingsmuir before slamming on the brakes.
“There was a bad accident recently on our corner when a car ended up upside down on its roof and it was knocked into a field. All sorts of things happen.”
Mrs Simpson, a retired school-teacher, has contacted Angus Councillor Braden Davy and Angus MP Kirstene Hair.
“I am not going to let this go. I have called for years for a speed reductions but my plea has fallen on deaf ears.
“No lives have been lost but it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident. I am not surprised in the least to hear about this video footage.
“It has got progressively worse over the years with folk racing round the corners.”
Her concerns were backed by Angus Councillor Braden Davy, Conservative member for Forfar and District.
He said: “Welton Corner is a notorious corner and I know many residents have concerns of cars simply ignoring speeding restrictions and speeding through.
“It’s clear to me we need tougher enforcement action on this stretch of road, to save lives and change driver behaviour, but we should also look to reduce the speed limit to Kingsmuir to 40mph.
“The road is windy and dangerous, and it’s almost impossible for a car to get up to 60mph, yet some do try.
“I’ll be asking officials yet again what more can be done to reduce speeding at this stretch of road.”
The Courier contacted Police Scotland for comment but received no response.
