Can anyone confirm that the paved section of road just after the corner of Palmer Street and Bateson Road in Garran is not a pedestrian crossing? This is just after the turn into the Canberra Hospital up near the Red Cross Centre.
There is no indication whatsoever that this is a crossing but it seems that some people assume it is because of the small, paved section of road.
Someone is going to get killed there – the number of people that I have seen who just walk out in front of on-coming traffic is frightening, and one day a motorist is going to fail to slam their brakes on in time to avoid collision.
