By Councillor Miller - Driver Behaviour


1)       Notes with concern the high number of drivers making illegal turns from Leith Walk into Brunswick Road, and thanks members of the public for the detailed information they have provided to councillors and council officers.

2)       Thanks council officers for responding with changes to traffic signals and for successfully making the case to police that this is a road safety priority.

3)       Notes however that police are not able to attend at all times, and agrees that safe and legal driving (such as adherence to road signs) should not rely on constant police presence.

4)       Calls on council officers to work in partnership with the police to carry out a behavioural change and communications campaign targeting drivers to increase road safety, with particular reference to obeying road signs and traffic signals.”
