The zebra crossing on Lorsdship Pk at the junction with Queen Elizabeth Walk is very dangerous because cars frequently fail to stop for pedestrians. This is because:
1. inadequate signage
2. the road paint has worn away so is not clearly visible to drivers
3. the speed bumps designed to slow cars down are too small to do the job effectrively.
My son was nearly knocked down very recently because a driver failed to see the zebra crossing and only just missed hitting him as he crossed the road. Many children use this crossing to get to school and to the park. It requires urgent attention to make it safer to cross on. Failure to do this will lead to someone being knocked over on this crossing. Please fix this problem urgently.
