HC Deb 01 February 1971 vol 810 cc269-70W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers were prosecuted following accidents at the pedestrian crossing in Harrow Road. Wembley, near its junction with St. Michael's Avenue, in 1968, 1969 and 1970, and with what results.

Mr. Sharpies

During the last nine months of 1968 one accident on the crossing was followed by a prosecution and conviction for driving without due care.

During 1969 one such accident was followed by a successful prosecution for driving without due care, and another by one for failing to accord precedence to pedestrians.

Three such accidents in 1970 have resulted in one driver being convicted of driving without due care; one of driving without due care and failing to accord precedence; and one of failing to accord precedence and having no test certificate. Inquiries are still in hand in respect of a fourth case.
