A local pensioner was knocked over last year by a car, suffering multiple serious injuries. The road in question has a 40mph speed limit. The pensioner is still recovering from her injuries in a local rehabilitation centre.
Adam Carter said:
“I am distraught that the lady was knocked over while crossing Bawtry Road. Living in the area I know that elderly people and children live either side of the road, and have to cross it to catch a bus or go to school.
“The council need to do more to make the road safer. We are very lucky this lady kept her life this time.
“That’s why I’m launching a road safety campaign. I cannot stand by and wait for someone else to get hit crossing the road before we try to make Bawtry Road safer for local residents.”
