Road Safety - please read
I received the email below from a concerned parent this morning - it is typical of communications I regularly receive whereby parents and members of the community share serious road safety concerns.
I hope with all my heart that it doesn't take an accident to make motorists exercise more caution on the roads near Crossdale.
'Please can I request that a communication goes out to all parents to remind them that if they have to drive to school, to do so courteously, patiently and with consideration to the many children that cycle to and from school.
Having cycled to school with my child for the last 18 months, how there hasn’t been an accident yet is beyond me. Today's driver that squeezed past before immediately turning across us, forcing us to brake hard - only saving 20 seconds in dropping the kids right at the school gate. '
