The posting below tells you everything you need to know about road safety on Merseyside. Our region is the second most dangerous place in the entire country to be a pedestrian. This raises serious questions for both our local authorities and our local police service.
The figures for Wirral are just as bleak. Child pedestrians in Wirral are twice as likely to be killed or seriously injured as their counterparts across the UK. We'll be following this up with a press release. It really is time to ask serious questions about road safety in Wirral and across Merseyside.
Thanks to Living Streets Wirral for the data.
