The A84 is one of the most notorious roads in Scotland. Just type A84 into Google and the very first hit that you get declares that "The A84 between M9 Junction 10 and Lochearnhead has a poor road safety record, according to EuroRAP. In its June 2008 GB Tracking Results, the Road Safety Foundation reported that the 44 km single carriageway stretch featured 29 fatal and serious injury accidents between 2003 and 2005". Recently due to staff shortages, Stirling Council has lost its school traffic crossing helper at the Woods of Doune, A84. As the road is so dangerous it is impertative that pedestrians can have a means of crossing this road safely. The most obvious course of action would be the installation of a pedestrian crossing. We therefore petition for there to be a pedestrian crossing installed at the Woods of Doune, A84.

Walking to school is part of growing up,and a healthy option,which should be as risk free as possible.Traffic Lights are the real solution for safety.
David Fitzpatrick, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: Hi, used to live in Wood of Doune, parents still live there. I was struck whilst crossing this road on my bike by a volvo towing a caravan (I was only around 10 years old at the time). I was very lucky, no injury sustained. Dangerous road, horrified no crossing!!!
