§ 78. Colonel APPLIN
asked the Minister of Transport whether he can give the number of fatal accidents caused to pedestrians through walking on the left side of the road; and if, in view of the danger of not facing on-coming traffic, he will take the necessary steps 2026 to ensure the rules of the road being complied with by pedestrians?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
I regret that I am not in possession of the figures which my hon. and gallant Friend requires. As regards the last part of the question, I am not aware of any general rule of the road applicable to persons on foot.
§ Colonel APPLIN
Is it not a fact that most of the accidents occurring to pedestrians from motor-cars are caused by them having their hacks to the oncoming traffic?
