Better protection for pedestrians needed, says Zimmerman  Listenfacebook
Southern District Councillor Paul Zimmerman says there should be greater protection for people waiting at bus stops or on traffic islands, after an accident on Aberdeen Main Road. Ten people were injured when a taxi ploughed into pedestrians there, with two admitted to intensive care for treatment. The driver has blamed a brake failure for his vehicle veering off the road. Jim Gould asked Zimmerman if the area is a traffic blackspot.
