Police have confirmed they are monitoring an area of Peebles where motorists are reported to be driving dangerously.
Concerns are growing that drivers flouting speed limits in the Glen Road and Springhill Road areas near the high school could cause a serious accident.
Community councillor Eddie Smith said: “It’s getting really bad. Many drivers just seem to fly along and take no notice of the speed limits.
“Something needs to be done before somebody gets badly hurt.”
Community police officer Diane Sorrell said: “There’s already been a meeting with traffic inspectors and we are communicating with the High School.”
