Ravenscote is much like any other junior school – its students are forced to run the gauntlet of dangerous roads and matters are made worse because they are refused a safe crossing.
Parents have been campaigning for a safe crossing for years so in an effort to help, we erected the ETA’s pop-up zebra crossing to help with their latest protest.
Pop-up zebra crossing
For the thousands of children who struggle each day to cross busy streets outside their schools, help is at hand in the shape of a pop-up zebra crossing that can be installed on any road in less than a minute.
Spokesperson at the Environmental Transport Association (ETA), Yannick Read, said: “The idea may be tongue-in-cheek, but the issue is deadly serious; with over 2,000 children killed or seriously injured each year on our roads, parents should never have to battle to have a genuine crossing installed.”
