In recent years there have been countless crashes at the Dinder crossroads which have caused many injuries, some of them serious, and even a fatality. The Make It Safe campaign is a bid to end the spate of accidents. The crossroads is just outside Wells, where the A371 is joined by the Old Wells Road to Shepton Mallet and The Rookery lane out of Dinder. Among the crashes there reported on by the Journal are a head-on smash with a driver having to be cut out of his car in October, a crash causing a car to catch fire in July, a two-car shunt in April 2006, a collision between a car and a coach in April 2005, and the fatality in September 2004. However, as well as these there are near-misses and minor accidents at the crossroads every week, and we believe it is time this was stopped.
