Children will design posters warning of the dangers of crossing the A127 after a 13-year-old boy killed by a car.Yes, it’s in relation to this incident.
Because it’ll somehow help, despite the official ones being disregarded…
Chief Inspector Shaun Cane, district police commander for Basildon, said: “We have had a very successful community consultancy meeting, which involved the ward councillor Terri Sargent, representatives from Essex County Council and the local community.
“We had a very sensible conversation regarding the immediate concerns around road safety and temporary measures to prevent problems.
“As well as the posters, other measures that are being considered are changing the barriers, perhaps including shrubbery. ”You could build barriers out of thornbush, I suppose? It’s worked in Africa for years, keeping dumb animals penned up and safe from danger…
“The temporary measures have been welcomed and everyone accepts that the suggestion of a footbridge is a possible longterm solution that will have to go through a consultation process.
“We are also going into schools to give safety talks.”This is the job of the police? Really? I thought you were so overstretched…
Mr Cane said Essex Police representatives had laid flowers at the Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, in London Road, Wickford, as a mark of respect.Wait, what? They are laying flowers?
To a Darwin Award candidate?
With taxpayer money ..?!?
Is this something they do for every road accident victim, then? Or is this one somehow deserving of special treatment?
