WEB VOTE: Does the A61 between Ripon and Harrogate need more safety measures?

A stark reminder: the sign on the A61 reminding motorists of the casualties over the years.

A stark reminder: the sign on the A61 reminding motorists of the casualties over the years.

This week, one of our readers in a letter suggested there should be a 40mph speed limit on the A61 between Ripon and Harrogate.

Currently, the national speed limit (60mph for cars) applies to much of the road.

The A61 has seen a number of accidents over the years with many fatalities, including a Harrogate couple whose inquest we reported on last week.

So we are asking you: does the A61 need more safety measures?

Please also feel free to sign in below and state your reasons why. If you are in favour of more safety measures, tell us what you think they should be.
