Cars ignore pedestrian zebra crossing

Reported via mobile in the Highways Obstructions category anonymously at 14:56, Sunday 8 May 2022

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

I have started crossing the road at the zebra crossing and on multiple occasions cars will continue speeding down the other lane. It’s very concerning that so many drivers don’t care and are willing to put pedestrians lives and safety at risk.

This has been an issue for as long as I can remember. I’ve lived in the Residence Tower building and use that zebra crossing to across the road to Sainsbury’s multiple times a week.

It would be great to have a speed camera installed to limit the speed of cars and so they are more likely to stop when they see pedestrians crossing. There are many schools in the area and children who use the crossings too and worry about their safety were a driver to be speeding down Woodberry Grove and not be able to stop fast enough for the small child crossing.

Please help us find a way to make the drivers slow down and stop for pedestrians as they are crossing the road.
