    Fatal accident prompts review of road safety in Leeds

    By Rob Steen on April 8, 2015

    Road safety in Leeds has been reviewed after a pedestrian was killed in a traffic collision in a bustling commercial area. After the incident, local residents gathered together to campaign for greater safety. Their tireless efforts were rewarded when the authorities agreed to move two zebra crossings in the vicinity.

    The victim of the original accident was an 83-year-old woman who was hit by a lorry. The driver of the heavy goods vehicle was arrested by police, on suspicion of having caused death by dangerous driving.

    Amongst other safety improvements that highway bosses are now considering are the relocation of a bus stop, as well as the introduction of a one-way system. A further action official claim to have in the pipeline is the deployment of a pedestrian crossing with traffic lights.

    The residents were pleased with the speed with which their demands were met. Council officials had actually sat in at some of the forum meetings in order to hear accounts of the various traffic risks at first hand. The biggest issue appeared to be lorries being forced to use the busy shopping thoroughfare.

    What steps safeguard road safety in Leeds?

    Like any of the UK’s larger cities and towns, Leeds boasts a thriving road network. Motorists can accept a lot of responsibility for their own safety by following some basic steps. Above all, their vehicle must be roadworthy at all times. This means that the appropriate MOT certification must be applied for at regular intervals.

    These tests will address any maintenance issues that could affect a car or lorry’s performance. Some components, such as braking systems or tyres, are crucial to keeping a vehicle as safe as possible, for both the driver and other road users.
