Safety At Pedestrian Crossings

EDM number 1188 in 1989-90, proposed by Harry Cohen on 27/06/1990.

That this House notes with horror that 109 persons were killed and 4,978 injured while using pedestrian crossings during 1989; is aggrieved that motorists who fail to give pedestrians precedence at such crossings do not appear to be being properly penalised, often receiving only a fixed penalty notice if punished at all; considers that Ministers of Transport, the police and the courts have all failed to take proper measures to protect the rights of pedestrians at crossings; and calls for a high-profile public education campaign, backed by monitoring of crossings by the police and exemplary penalties in the courts, to ensure that motorists know that pedestrians have precedence at crossings.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
