Accidents involving pedestrians outside school gates, pick up points and school crossing points are still too frequent.
Many schools are in the centre of busy towns and cities and at pick-up times the roads outside those schools are often full of vehicle parked by parents, buses collecting children and of course passing traffic.
- Restricted views due to parked vehicles
- Buses obstructing view of pavements
- Lack of attention by driver
- Impatient drivers overtaking slower vehicles.
These are some of the most common causes of pedestrian accidents outside schools gates.
Drivers must be on a heightened alert when driving close to school pick up points and must make sure that they are able to stop quickly if necessary. This means that even where it appears a child has stepped out from behind a parked car or from behind a bus Graham Coffey & Co Specialist Pedestrian Solicitors will look to successfully argue against the presumption that the child is fully at fault.
It is not only children who are the victims of road traffic accidents outside school gates. Adults are just as vulnerable to poor driving.
