Trust me, if the average motorist was not compelled to allow pedestrians to cross at a Zebra crossing due them having the right of way or forced to via a red light, most wouldn’t.
It is not a legal requirement to stop at a pedestrian crossing

I think you’ll find if the pedestrian has started to cross, there is.

Of course we’re talking Zebra crossings. Obviously if it’s managed by lights of course you are.

Are you compelled to, thought it was give way to pedestrians on the crossing? We've taken it upon ourselves to stop for those waiting

Apologies, yes you must stop if someone has set foot onto a zebra crossing but not if they’re approaching/waiting

Correct.

But it’s a brave, or stupid, motorist that doesn’t anticipate a pedestrian stood waiting on a crossing may cross as you’re approaching so best to let them, if safe to do so.

Not really affecting you though is it? They might be in and out of people's houses.
I see lots having chats on the phone/texting whilst driving and wonder why? Wearing a mask is unlikely to kill me, them on the phone might.

Yeah they probably shouldn't be allowed on the road if they're caught doing that to often or be near sharp objects

Re: Coronavirus

My 17-year-old nephew has been offered a jab (He's 18 on Halloween) and falls in the new bracket.


He will get it. His 20-year-old sister has had her first jab.

Re: Coronavirus

I took my daughter in to London yesterday for a hospital appointment and it was interesting travelling on the tube. Probably around 70% of people were wearing masks but we also saw people not wearing a mask on the platform and putting one on when getting on the train and others wearing a mask on the platform and taking it off when getting on the train (bear in mind that most of our journey was above ground) There was a scramble for masks when two TFL employees got on our train at Finchley Road!

My daughter and I wore masks BTW - conditions of travel and all that...

Thank heavens for air condition on the subsurface line trains though. Wouldn't have liked wearing a mask on the Circle Line for example.

Elsewhere, things were close to 100% at the hospital, both staff and patients

Re: Coronavirus

Just been for my second maskless shop and it's about 50/50 for wearing /not wearing.
