Drop kerbs a safety issue

First published in Letters

DROP kerbs have appeared at the entrances to and from the Royal Gwent Hospital’s improved car parks with additional scaled-down pedestrian crossings from kerb to kerb. Surely the drop kerbs inviting pedestrians to cross our busy residential streets should include traffic warning signs and zebra crossings?

Too many careless motorists park or partly park, obstructing the drop kerbs, causing serious problems for senior citizens, wheelchair users, parents with pushchairs, all careful motorists etc .

While the authorities encourage everybody to walk and exercise more often, safety on our streets has drastically deteriorated.
