School Crossing cuts ‘put children’s lives at risk’

Posted: February 1, 2011 by Lambeth UNISON activist in Cutswatch
There were almost 1,200 accidents on Lambeth’s roads last year, you would think that sobering statistic (the third highest in London) would push road safety up the list of priorities for the council.
However the council has announces they will be sacking all of the borough’s School Crossing Patrols. Schools will instead be given a “risk assessment” and information packs.  Caroline Perry, a spokeswoman for road safety charity Brake, said in the Evening Standard this “is putting lives at risk”.
