The surrounding streets were gridlocked as mourners parked wherever they could find in order to pay their last respects.How lovely! Meanwhile, some high-speed bandwagon jumping is ongoing:
Coun Dad, who is also Lancashire county councillor for Accrington West, said that although the cause of the crash was still being investigated, he wanted to bring up the issue of safety on Hyndburn Road with the authority’s highways committee.
He added: “We need to learn lessons from these things. I would request the appropriate people look to see how we can make sure nothing like this ever happen again.
“I will certainly be looking to see if we can look at any traffic calming or accident prevention measures.”This (dangerous driving) seems to be quite a prevalent pastime in certain areas, so it’s hard to see what would do the trick.
Answers on a postcard, perhaps?
