Running the gauntlet with traffic

IT IS Easter Sunday and I have just returned from visiting the seafront and I thought I would buy myself some fish and chips and sit on the wall.

IT IS Easter Sunday and I have just returned from visiting the seafront and I thought I would buy myself some fish and chips and sit on the wall.

While I was doing this I was horrified by what I saw happening around me. There was such a lot going on, directly in front of the pier and thousands of people around me.

There were children on BMX bikes cycling and doing stunts on the new sea defences. They were also playing with leftover builder's material.

There were people having a picnic on the road side of the new sea wall which has been constructed on a slope so people, I assume, shouldn't be on it.

The land train was also running and people were getting in the way. So why is it running?

The amount of people parking anywhere they feel like.

People were also walking straight across the road, where there used to be lights and running the gauntlet with the traffic.

Obviously, some of these things will change when everything is finished, except for one thing that I can see, is still going to happen - people jumping over the new sea wall.

This could be easily corrected by a small stainless steel railing, approximately 30cm high however, this will not stop people from walking along the wall by the road. In the meantime, something needs to be done by either the police or some other official needs to get on the case and sort these problems out. It is only going to get worse

someone will get hurt, if not killed.

The parking seems to be uniform over the whole of Weston we need traffic wardens. People seem to think that they can park anywhere they feel like it, on double yellow lines on pavements on corners - all three at one time.
