§ 72. Sir W. DAVISON
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the method adopted by the municipal authorities of Mannheim, to make pedestrians realise the risks they incur by carelessness in crossing thoroughfares by marking with a black cross on the street the spots where any pedestrian was killed or severely injured; and whether he will consider the desirability of taking similar action in the Metropolitan Police area?
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Does not the hon. Gentleman think that some such proposal as indicated in the question would be likely to startle pedestrians, motorists and the public out of their pathetic apathy with regard to the terrible death roll in our roads and streets amounting, I believe, to 6,000 fatal accidents in the year?
