    Avondrust has a speed limit of 5km/h but not many go that slow. Last month it was a vampire nearly run me over. And yesterday a RDNS car caught up to my car and from the right side of the road it darted down the first street on the right and high speed. I was going to get a photo but was told that they do it all the time. If you have a speed limit sign up and they do not follow the sign tbey should not be allowed on site. I have only been here twice in 6 months because would like things from the shop on site. They do a good job and they should get 5 stars but speedster get no stars. I feel very sorry for the residents that live there. If they did that where my mum's village they would not be allowed back on site. They would have 2 park out on the street.
