'Crossing not in use' said the sign. But Buckinghamshire County Council didn't bother to explain how pedestrians were supposed to cross this busy road in Amersham. Like most people, I took my life in my hands and crossed anyway. I witnessed a pensioner getting a blast on the horn from a selfish and thoughtless driver.
It made me angry. Why does Bucks County Council think drivers are so much more important than pedestrians? Woodside Road had temporary traffic lights for weeks, but they had been removed some time ago. But in any case, why should a council have any right to treat walkers and pushchair pushers as second class citizens? It's time our councillors used their feet rather than their cars. They'd soon come to their senses.
