To be getting increasingly pissed off with drivers not stopping at zebra crossings?

Is this happening in anyone else's area? Over the past couple of years, I've noticed a real problem in my area with drivers not stopping at zebra crossings. I thought it was just cos I'd just become a pushchair-pusher and was out walking around with DD more, so was noticing it.

But recently it's got even worse again, and it's now happening at least once a day where I live.

It's so dangerous!

What's it like where other people live? And is there anything that can be done? I feel like I should complain to someone but I don't know who!

I'm finding speeding has become worse where I am. Most people doing 35/40 in a 30 and putting pressure on for me to do the same. This has also linked with a rise in anti social behaviour.

I believe there is a simple reason...there are literally no police driving around. We live on a main road so always used to get ambulances and police driving past. Whenever I hear a siren it is NEVER a police car anymore. They just don't seem to exist.

"Take down their number plate, preferably car colour and make if you can. Ring the police on 101

The MN answer to everything 🙄

You seriously think that's a police matter???"

Drivers going through a red light and nearly hitting pedestrians?
Of course, that's a police matter. Why wouldn't it be?
