Traffic lights for safety
Dear Mr Hinchliffe & Mr Cassidy,
My name is Jacob, I’m eight years old and I go to Sandgate state school. I like to ride my bike. Sadly I can’t ride to school or the waterfront because there is no traffic lights at the end of my street and it is very dangerous.
I would very much like to have some traffic lights at the corner of Wakefield St and Brighton Terrace, or at the corner of Brisbane Street and Wakefield Street. This would make it safer for me and my brother and sister to cross the road. Also, my dad has a disability and likes to ride his bike too. The busy traffic means it is very dangerous for him to cross.
There have been lots of accidents on the corner of Wakefield St and Brighton Terrace and I don’t like that. I think some traffic lights would stop people from getting injured.
The following people agree with me.
