I heartily concur with your reader G Arundell in that a risk assessment should be carried out within our High Street.Perhaps at the same time, the inspectors would care to assess motorists that: a) park on double lines, including the bus stop lay-bys, therefore forcing the bus to stop with its rear out in the middle of the road.b) park outside the designated parking baysc) park on zig zag linesd)park and/or complete a U-turn over the white bubble markings at the bottom of Avon Waye) and bring the High Street to a halt because they wish to park on the other side of the road to that which they are facing.However, I suspect that no matter what assessment is carried out, the moment that a motorist's brake light comes on, it is automatically assumed that it is the fault of the Cabstand traffic lights.I suggest that the true situation is that the flow of traffic has improved considerably, a fact that is born out by the traders who are aware of the traffic flow past their doors almost every moment of their working day and who are aware that any queues that do arise are dealt with quickly and without hindrance.Ron Hazelton Portishead Chamber of Trade and Commerce
