[Image taken 16.9.21] Denning’s Yard access, York (between the junction of Crichton Avenue and Wigginton Road.) A warm, sunny school day morning. I did a COUNT between 07.55 and 08.55.
COUNT RESULT: 345 people including a Babboe (once in each direction), a private e-scooter and two cycles with trailers with children inside.
While I was observing the junction the driver of a white van entered the site, narrowly missing someone crossing from Foss Islands Cycle Route, ditto the driver of a red car which parked just beyond the double yellows. A driver northbound from Wiggington Road did a U turn in the middle of Wiggington Road/Crichton Ave to return down Wigginton Road. Drivers are not going dead slow when they turn into Denning's Yard despite there being no sightlines for anyone whether it's them as they turn in or the people crossing. Having seen what seemed like two horribly close misses I realised I was apprehensive as I crossed, uphill (see: #174177), from my position for this image to reach the shared use path over the railway. Reason for my efforts here: #170962 plus links to count results from June 2021 and June 2022.
