Will it take a few fatalities before anything is done to make Kennedy Avenue in Kapparis safer for pedestrians?
Not one single pedestrian crossing anywhere along that long length of road. The maximum speed limit for that road is 50 kph which in my opinion is way to fast and should be reduced to 30 kph. It's strange that all the villages have over the top sleeping policemen every few yards where you hardly see pedestrians crossing the road and yet Kennedy Avenue which has a great many people trying to cross the road nothing has been put in place for them?
If it is a zebra crossing they hardly ever stop anyway,it would have to be lights.
I use the zebra near the clinic in Protaras every day and hardly anyone stops(including police cars). Often if my side has stopped and I'm half way across I have to stop in the middle of the road.
Speed humps ain't much use either, they have one down by the dangerous bend.
But because they are called speed humps they think you have to speed to go over them,. Plus of course it says 30k, but again they think it means 30k over the 50.
I would prefer some sizeable speed humps and I would be quite happy to see offenders do some serious damage to their vehicles if they drive over at speed. This is necessary to save lives on this dangerous road.
Instead of the regular waste of time speed checks on the dual carriageway and highway which has nothing to do with safety and is just a cash generator get them on Kennedy Avenue where they can do some real good.
