Another incident of a child suffering an injury on the Ramsgate road. I hope KCC are keeping count. These of course are only the accidents that are recorded, there are many more that go unreported.
It’s all good and well having safety campaigns as presently but alterations need incorporating into the busy fast road to make it safer for all users as well, which KCC know about but are failing to do.
Should be 30 miles though out road, but tories in kcc know best!! I
Barry, the accident area was, I believe, in the 30mph area! I see as always, the car driver is being held to blame with no witnesses to verify this. The driver, however , was completely in the wrong for not stopping and if found will quite correctly be dealt with that for offence.
