Helen Gresty started this petition to Bolton Council

Yet again I was almost knocked over on the crossing on Bolton road outside the Rose and Crown this morning at around 08.00. I was taking my daughter to nursery and waiting patently for 5 or 6 cars to fail to stop at the crossing, once we had safely crossed the busy road I dropped her at nursery. On my way home a white van coming out of Molyneux Road stopped at the crossing however a Bolton Council dark blue/ black car fully marked with Bolton Council logo failed to stop and almost hit me as I was half way across the road. When I started to walk over the crossing the car was far enough away to see me and stop,the driver put his hand up to acknowledge he had seen me as I stepped back out of the way from being hit by him. This is far from the first time this has happened on this crossing drivers just don't look so don't stop.

Change the Zebra Crossing outside the Rose & Crown Pub in Westhoughton to a Pelican (traffic light controlled) one. This crossing is extremely dangerous I have been nearly knocked over on numerous occasions whilst crossing. Also cars regularly fail to stop while you are waiting to cross.

The crossing is regularly used by children and their parents coming and going from nursery and schools.
