Road Safety Concern
Re: Road Safety Concern – Zebra Crossing (Tonbridge Rd j/w Riding Lane)
I am a pupil at a school, Hildenborough, Kent. I use the Zebra Crossing in Tonbridge Road (j/w Riding Lane) frequently, along with other students from my school, pupils from other schools and people from the local community. Often when I have been trying to cross the road, I have found that car users do not stop when someone is waiting! The crossing is used by the local community daily to cross the busy road safely when out; shopping, running, walking and whilst using the local bus and train service.
The Zebra Crossing is used regularly, especially during the morning and at the end of school, which is when the roads around the crossing are very busy! I am in the process of trying to find out if anyone else at my school or within the local community has experienced a similar problem when trying to cross the road.
I am concerned that there may soon be an accident and feel the crossing needs to be altered to one that has traffic lights!
Please help me to make a change by signing my petition.
Thank you for your support.
