Driven round the bend

East Kilbride News - - EAST KILBRIDE VIEW -

Dear Edi­tor,

Have driv­ers for­got­ten what it’s like to try to cross a road on foot?

Three times re­cently on three dif­fer­ent cross­ings I’ve been ig­nored by driv­ers. 1) On the green man cross­ing from Lind­say field Mor­risons to the care home. Car stopped in out­side lane but as we were cross­ing on the green man, a car shot through on the inside lane, just miss­ing us; 2) At Green­hills shops, driver drove through even though I had started to cross on the ze­bra cross­ing; 3) In Mor­risons at the sec­ond ze­bra cross­ing as cars turn into car park. Cars fre­quently drive straight in – of­ten, it seems, un­aware that there is a cross­ing there. I do think this one should be repo­si­tioned or sig­nage im­proved.

While on my soap­box, don’t driv­ers know to give way at a round­about to cars on the right (and not wait for cars on the left)? There are enough round­abouts to prac­tice this! Anne Tay­lor, via email
