|16/9/2006 09:24||Steve W||I travel up the A1079 towards York each morning, and return back down to Market Weighton at tea time.
The road can move quite well for a single carrigeway, depends what is on the road ahead, the problem is slow moving vehicles ie tractors, who will not do the curtious thing and pull in.
They have every right to use the A1079 but the drivers give no consideration to the 1- 2 mile of traffic they have built up behind them.
If signage was placed along the road to make slow moving vehicles pull in to allow the traffic to flow, this would help.
There are several good passing places along the road to allow them to pull in safely.
Again this morning through frustration I saw drivers taking chances to get past a lorry crawling along.

Just to say I support your work, especially the safety work for the a1079. Although I haven't seen an accident, I have been very alarmed at the driving of some of the road users. Some of them appear to me to be accidents waiting to happen. I would be pleased to see measures that prevent accidents - I'm unsure of the exact number, but there have clearly been numerous fatalities in recent years.
