Pedestrian crossing cost a quarter of a million – now it's called dangerous

Motorists claim they have a choice between breaking the law or paying huge repair bills after a £260,000 pedestrian crossing was put into use.

It has both been put into use and sloshed again.

Drivers in Flintshire, Wales, are already complaining about a new pedestrian crossing that has been built in the city.

The motorists specifically complain that there is not enough space for cars that have to turn into the pedestrian crossing and hold back for pedestrians at the same time.

At least not if there is also room for traffic on the main road the drivers came from. The motorists say it is so wrong that they have two choices.

Either break the law by continuing forward even though there are pedestrians crossing or get huge repair bills by slamming into the traffic in front. There is simply no room for both.

This is written by the media The Leader .

The city council in Flintshire municipality has already taken the consequence and temporarily closed the pedestrian crossing to traffic until a solution has been found. So a release in addition to the 260,000 kroner it initially cost to build the separation in the road.

Motorists are not the only ones who think the pedestrian crossing is dangerous. City council member Daniel Thomas also thinks so. To The Leader, he says that he has seen how cars do not stop for pedestrians for fear of having their rear end 'clipped', because the distance to the main road is far too short.

But the pedestrian crossing in Wales is not the only stupid dump made in traffic. We also find plenty of examples of this here at home.

Last year, the Norwegian Road Administration had to dig up a speed bump on which a million kroner had been spent. The bump, which was put down on Svendborgvej in Faaborg on Sydfyn, was too much of a nuisance and never came to work. Read more about it here .
