From my office window, I get to see one of the 2 pedestrian crossings on Townshend street in Phillip. I have seen all manner of accidents, near misses and closer encounters (that the pedestrians would wish for). My questions are:
How many people slow down for pedestrian crossings, or take the time to check that the crossing is free?
Who is exempt from stopping at a pedestrian crossing, can the elderly get away with just driving through and waving at the bemused pedestrian? (occasionally, this has been me on the crossing)
what is the speed limit down Townshend street anyway? (there aren’t any signs)
