It’s car­nage

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - OPINION -

Why are so many drivers ig­nor­ing the ze­bra cross­ings in su­per­mar­ket car parks? This is be­com­ing rou­tine be­hav­iour and is very dan­ger­ous.

Three times re­cently in three dif­fer­ent su­per­mar­ket car parks I’ve had mo­torists drive over the cross­ing very close to me when I have been on the cross­ing. I’ve seen it hap­pen to oth­ers on cross­ings too.

Are mo­torists be­liev­ing it is “an op­tion” to stop for pedes­tri­ans, since these are in pri­vate car parks, or are they just in such a hurry that they will risk knock­ing a pedes­trian down to rush by?

What­ever the rea­son, there is go­ing to be a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent if mo­torists per­sist with this reck­less driv­ing. – Judi Martin, Aberdeen­shire
