WHICH AREAS OF HEDON are traffic hotspots? Where are accidents most likely to occur?
Jean wrote about Market Hill:
Why oh why do we have double yellow lines on Market Hill? Please visit at 8.55 and 11.25 and likewise in the afternoon when the nursery children are dropped off and picked up. Many of the parents and guardians who drive up think ‘oh well, I’ll only be a minute’, but they don’t realise that there are many other selfish people like themselves doing the same thing. Add to that the visitors to the two doctors’ surgeries, Hedon Hire, and normal traffic, and you have chaos, and one day a tragedy. It’s even more manic when it is raining! More car parks are not the answer – that would lead to more cars. What we need is education, we need our children to get used to walking, yes, even in the rain, heaven forbid. Please leave your cars at home unless you live out of Hedon.
Do you agree that Market Place is a source of chaos and an accident waiting to happen? Leave your comments below.
Meanwhile the Hedon Blog will ask the East Riding Council to offer a viewpoint on this.
