We are not, as a general rule, prepared to approve the installation of zebra crossings on roads carrying fast-moving traffic, where they may induce a dangerously false sense of security.
Is there not a good deal of evidence that some zebra crossings tend to defeat the objects for which the bypasses were first designed? Is not it a fact, as my hon. Friend has indicated, that the tendency of pedestrians to regard these crossings as absolutely safe is in itself a danger on such roads?
While thanking my right hon. Friend for that Answer, may I ask whether he will pay particular attention to the great differences which occur in different parts of the country both in the quality and quantity of the lighting?
