The primary school is on the main A6 running through our village. There is a local high traffic volume, especially with large lorries and bus’.
In the past 4 weeks two large vehicles have gone through a red light on the pelican crossing outside the school. The pavement is narrow and vehicles will come past very close to the curb.
I have spoken to the Council who stated there is nothing they can do as there are the triangle school road signs and a pelican crossing.
Can you advise me as to what I can do to persuade the Council 20mph is necessary in making the walk to School safer for our young children?
Kind regards. Leanne.
We would be delighted to help and will make contact by email.
Of course any isolated and limited intervention endorses speeding up where such and intervention does not exist. We far prefer a wide-area implementation with light-touch engineering to act as visual rather than posterial calming where necessary. With community engagement and understanding that driving slower makes the community better then much more can be achieved.
