This has been coming for a while. She was lucky it wasn't a Gilbraiths wagon ignoring the GIVE WAY signs that inform traffic on Highfield Rd that vehicles travelling along Mosley St/Walk have priority. The identical junction of Garden St and Wensley Rd is controlled by STOP signs due to having no vision due to the old Forest Pub on one corner and the Newsagents on the other. The council roads department are aware of these issues and have yet done anything to combat the problem. Will it take somebodies death to make tham wake up, smell the coffee and realise that they can affect changes in other neighbourhoods they are responsible for, and not just the ones they live in.

There is nothing difficult about the junction of Garden St, Wensley Rd and Saunders Rd. It is clearly signed as STOP.

If my memory serves me right, that means apply the handbrake after arriving at the junction.

However STOP for some reason translates as "I'll ignore that and hedge my bets". Simple solution? Put a camera at the top of Garden St and one at the bottom of Saunders Rd and catch the offenders.

Pigs might fly.
