LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
I have recently had occasions to sit in my daughter’s car while she takes my grandchildren into school and watch with fear and worry of what I have seen.
I have seen large trucks with accompanying trailers speeding up from Stratford at such a rate that if anything untoward should happen at this vicious intersection, there would be carnage. I have seen these same types of trucks not bother to even stop from approaching Pembroke Road from Cardiff Road as they cross into Monmouth Road.
I have seen other vehicles speeding down from the mountain with apparent little awareness of this section and most importantly, Pembroke School itself.
At school drop-off time, (and no doubt the same at pick-up time) to add to this potential for a serious RTA, is the school’s car park, which in itself causes me great concern, with little people walking/running between moving vehicles, some not even escorted by an adult.
I am not pointing fingers at anyone, the School, the Council or the parents of the kids that attend this school, but the potential for a serious accident at, or adjacent to the school is there, and something must be done.
There are numerous solutions to reduce this possibility, but the first step is for all those responsible for the kids’ safety, is to accept that the present situation is untenable and must be addressed before something unthinkable happens. S ROBERTSON
