Cameras better than rumble strips; LETTERS Get in touch - tell us what you think Email: Twitter: @coventrytelegraph Facebook: Post: Coventry Telegraph, Leicester Row, Canal Basin, Coventry, CV1 4LY.

I SEE it is proposed to put rumble strips in Broad Lane because of a petition containing 77 signatures is calling for action.

There must be nearly a thousand houses in Broad Lane and with two occupants per dwelling minimum that's 2000 people - less than 0.4 per cent of the residents so it is not a very significant representation.

Better to put up average speed cameras and avoid the problem that speed bumps and rumble strips cause our dedicated ambulance drivers. Kevin Lynch, Styvechale Grange Unpatriotic to refuse dictatorship WHAT Mr Wilson (Letters, August 1) is suggesting is that we replace his 'typical European dictatorship' with is an alternative centre of power, a UK dictatorship, in which the constitution, institutions are now judged as 'unpatriotic' if they appear to question the leadership.

When in 1945, Winston Churchill proposed a similar plebiscite on the extension of the wartime coalition, his then deputy, Clement Attlee, incidentally, described referendums as "a device of dictators and demagogues", replied: "I could not consent to the introduction into our national life of a device so alien to all our traditions."

Attlee and those who think like him can in Mr Wilson's book be counted among the many 'traitors' who have helped to mislead the UK since Winston held sway Kevin Cryan, Radford Simple plan in place for Brexit ANDY McDonald (Letters, August 7) says that there is confusion over Boris Johnson's Brexit plan.

Quite the reverse is true. He has said he will wait for the EU to reopen the withdrawal agreement and drop the backstop.

If they refuse we will leave without a deal on October 31 - 'simples'. Paul Blundell, Whitley
