Low cost zebra crossings seem to have great potential for improving pedestrian safety. They are common in retail parks, at supermarkets, hospitals and airports.
However, following a motion I put to the Council last November calling for greater potential use of low cost zebra crossings, it seems we may have to wait a while before we see them on our streets. The Scottish Government doesn't have the power to authorise a trial, as I had asked, but I am pleased that the Council will carry out an investigation of existing low cost zebras. This is all explained in a report at item 7.4 on the agenda of a recent meeting of the Council's Transport Committee here
