With children off school this week, a reminder to drivers to take care when driving on busier streets. This follows an incident on Glasgow Road earlier this week where a young boy ran out into the road, away from the crossing point and oblivious to a passing car.
Thankfully an accident was avoided mostly due to the driver’s swift actions, but it left her shaken given how close this near miss was. Others witnessed the incident.
We’re sure most kids are all too aware of road safety but in this instance, the kid may have been distracted. Also, a little reminder for drivers wouldn’t go amiss too, especially as there’s so many blind spots and parked cars on Glasgow Road. Please be vigilant, slowing down if children are walking close to the kerbside as you pass.
