Kendal residents who regularly have to walk under the railway bridge at the top of Parkside Road are in danger of a severe soaking due to inconsiderate motorists negotiating the flooded road.

I suffered this ‘free shower’ myself recently and had to help a young mother with a pram get safely through by holding up the traffic.

One morning a car broke down in the water causing chaos and long tailbacks.

The problem of inadequate drainage has now existed for several years.

Surely someone can do something about it!

Until they do, motorists should note the advice of the AA/RAC etc and slow down in a low gear at steady speed when crossing a flooded road.
