...the actions of the pedestrians
Diana James, 47, said: “After getting off the bus I heard the girl crossed the road between two buses and was hit.
“I think it had been parked behind the bus when it stopped, went round it and sped out without seeing her.
“This road is so dangerous - there have been a few accidents here in the past few years, including two young children who have died.”
While I'm sure this is a tragedy for the family, it's a little hard to blame the road here. Or the driver:
The driver of the lorry stopped at the scene, on the South Circular road, but has not been arrested.
As we know, that tells you a lot
We have one today as well
Cut the speed. It was only cut from 40 to 30 a couple of years ago. I can't remember any accidents before that
BRING BACK TUFTY!

They've got five spares.
Can't have been as smart as they thought she was if she couldn't cross the road in a safe manner. Basic Green Cross Code - avoid crossing between parked vehicles so the traffic can see you.
That road is no more dangerous than any other road. It's just that the locals are too lazy/stupid to use one of the many crossings that may involve a 15 yard walk.
" It was only cut from 40 to 30 a couple of years ago."
Pretty soon, we'll have to bring back the man with the red flag.
"(He's not been nicked for anything has he?)"
Heh! He's probably the only 70s tv character who hasn't!

Darwin Award Winner!
"Can't have been as smart as they thought she was if she couldn't cross the road in a safe manner."
The standard of road safety has, regrettably, gone downhill even faster than the standard of driving. It's the perfect storm.
