HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 c107W
68. Mr. David Griffiths

asked the Minister of Transport what action he will take to prevent pedestrians from jay walking across main roads; and if he will take steps to control pedestrians going over zebra crossings.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Where appropriate, guard rails are provided to encourage pedestrians to use crossings. I am carrying out an experiment in pedestrian control in London, but it has not yet produced sufficient evidence to enable any firm conclusions to be drawn. The Pedestrian Crossings Regulations already make it an offence for pedestrians to loiter on zebra crossings.
