Video: Notts TV’s Hugh Casswell on Netherfield campaigners calling for improved road safety
Residents, businesses and councillors in Netherfield are calling for improved road safety after CCTV footage appears to show a woman being hit by a car.
The footage was caught on camera by Eight Barbers with footage showing bystanders going to help the woman; she was not seriously injured.
No arrests have been made as of yet with enquiries still ongoing.
Owner Bruce Baran saw the incident while cutting someone’s hair.
He said: “When I saw outside, I saw the lady on the road.
“Too many old people are leaving this area because it’s not safe for them; especially when school is finished too as you can see so many kids.”
There’s a strange configuration of crossings
Carlton East County Councillor Nicki Brooks thinks speeding traffic is a problem but believes Netherfield has a more specific problem than that.
She said: “There’s quite a strange configuration of three crossings that are very close together and a mini roundabout.
“I know that there are going to be the new brighter LED beacons going to be put in soon.
“I’m pushing for a date for when that work is going to start because I think that work needs to happen now; we can’t have accidents like this happening again.”
