    • The standard of driving and parking near St.Georges primary at school run times is a thing of wonder, parents totally fixated on parking as close as possible, and getting away as soon as the little darlings are onboard as afast as possible, no care in how they park or rejoin traffic, yellow lines or zigzags are just somewhere that’s less likely to have a car on it when they turn up. Traffic trying to go past the school gets frustrated with the sudden stopping and pulling out, you need eyes everywhere.
      All the double yellows there need no loading “pips” and wardens ready to dish out tickets. Wouldn’t do any harm for all the schools.
      Though all that said , it could have been totally unrelated to the daily school run mayhem.

  1. Great work by the Stagecoach staff in assisting with stopping people being able to approach the scene of the accident.

    Hope both parties recover quickly, but I only saw the motorcyclist and thankfully they were sitting up being treated.

    Be safe out there people, it’s a jungle!

  2. We watched a young woman driver in Broadstairs yesterday ,she was turning into the junction where we were crossing, whilst looking into her mobile phone and talking and oblivious to us ! My friend said she was on Face time !

    • I’ve said for years that vehicles should be fitted with a docking station for the phone and if it’s not in there when the car is moving then it immobilises the vehicle.

      I see one about 5 mins after the Margate Rd crash, tailgating whilst looking into her lap at her phone. Problem is these idiots are the ones that walk away uninjured and ruin someone’s life forever.

      • Quite agree Scott. Phones are so useful … and such a menace. So tempting to turn mine off when I’ve been using it for audio directions and then no longer need it. But I don’t, I don’t touch the thing at all while driving. But I’m old, I wasn’t born clutching one in my little fist. It’s yet another ‘something needs to be done!’ situation. Driving’s getting increasingly scary, as is crossing the flipping road.

  3. St. Georges primary is mayhem at school run times, yellow lines and zigzags just somewhere more likely to clear for someone to park on and then pull away from with no care. Totally agree with the comments regarding phone use at the wheel, what is it with people and an inability to put the things down, same for cyclists and pedestrians.

  4. Why are people still allowed to park half on the pavement and half on the yellow lines outside St George’s School everyday. We should have a traffic warden in place.

    • the school was built in the wrong area regarding the entrance, red lines should be outside every school for 500m in each direction At Dane Court I see parents parking in the zig zag area all the time ,no enforcement officers there at any time

  5. There was a first responder, ambulance and firebrigade for the pedestrian verses motorbike. Motorbike driver was shocked and grazes on his arms and legs, but otherwise was OK. The pedestrian a McDonald’s worker was on the road. The said emergency vehicles arrived quite quickly. As far as I could see when I went pasted second time the pedestrian was in the ambulance. I do pray the pedestrian makes a quick recovery x

  6. I see that the wreck was left there half on the road,half off and facing oncoming traffic for another day or so, just so it could cause more greif and potentially another accident.The apathy of our police force is unreal.
    And whoever planned the reshaping of the of the road next to the traffic lights has not helped drivers there.Just like the kerb ramp in Nash lane that is just primed to flip a vehicle. The lights are on at KCC but definitely no one in.
