Green light for zebra crossings
The government, this week, gave to go ahead for zebra crossings to be reintroduced into South Australia.
The crossings — which are displayed by black and white lines on the road — require cars to slow to 30km/h and give way to pedestrians on or about to enter the marked area.
The government hope that the reintroduction of these will reduce pedestrian accidents. As they give preference to pedestrians and the speed is so low this would seem to be an inevitable result. The only down point is that they can only be installed on 50km streets. The first location that has come to my mind is the dog leg at the northern end of East Ave. What sites can you think of if Unley were to embrace this?
