Dangerous Crossing

As a pedestrian I rely on crossings all the time. Having recently moved to Braintree I have found one zebra crossing in particular to be more dangerous than others I've experienced. This is how we make a difference.

On the Coggeshall Road there's a double roundabout by Sainsbury's petrol station, at which there are three zebra crossings, two of which are incredibly dangerous. My proposal is to turn these zebra crossings (or pedestrian crossings) into toucan crossings (one with traffic lights for both bikes and pedestrians) so that we don't have to worry anymore.

I honestly cannot count how many close calls I've had at the one by Braintree Tattoo Studio with drivers not paying attention to pedestrians and driving off early or just not stopping in general. I know I am not the only one who takes issue with this as I have heard people discussing their concerns at the crossing.

I am in contact with Local Councillor Robert Mitchell who is putting my proposal forward to the Braintree Local Highways Panel, but as the old saying goes there is strength in numbers and we need you to help us with our mission.
