Protect Pedestrians in Bramley, Rotherham
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
I just would like to share what happened with my niece with you all to raise awareness.
My niece Jana who is 12 years old was hit by a car in Flash lane, Bramley on her way back home from Wickeresly School and Sports College.
after speaking with witnesses we knew that this wasn’t the first incident involving a child pedestrian in this area. 2 years ago, another child was hit by a car in the same place! Many reports have been raised to Rotherham council to add zebra crossing or speed bumps in this road, the reports have been chased according to the witness over 100 times.
the council has replied with a formal letter to the witness saying that they have raised £10000 and they are dealing with it (the witness still has this letter with her) and unfortunately, until today there is still no zebra crossing in this road.
To me, this is pure negligence. the council has failed to protect our kids' lives and safety. My niece is absolutely traumatised physically and mentally. The witness recognised the twins and she said she sees them walking to school every day and they are very sensible.
She has been to A&E and they suspect pelvic fracture and they will refer her to fracture clinic today. Her twin sister who witnessed the incident cannot stop crying since yesterday and she is shocked, depressed and in deep fear.
Jana needs professional mental support after what happened. She woke up last night screaming and crying hysterically. She is in deep pain and her back hurts very much (she flew on the bonnet and fell on her bum). She doesn’t want to go to school anymore.
She avoids going out, when her dad tried to help her and took her out in fresh air, she cried hysterically and couldn’t even look at any car on the road and kept hiding her eyes with her hands.
This has to be seriously addressed by the council.
Jana doesn’t deserve what happened to her. no child on earth deserves to go through this.
please take care! Please share this post!
