Steel bollards erected to enhance the safety of pedestrians at the corner junction of Ledcameroch Rd and Whitehall Road have still not been replaced after being knocked down by a vehicle. This is a dangerous corner often associated with congestion on week days as a result of school related traffic. Cars regularly mount the pavement at this corner to make room for on coming traffic from Whitehills road as children make their way to and from school. A sandstone garden pillar was damaged in the past by a vehicle at this location. On this occasion and the collapse of the bollard a pedestrian/school pupil would undoubtedly have met a horrendous end. It's about time that East Dumbartonshire Council take serious note of the dangers associated with this corner and the inconsiderate parking of individuals on keep clear road markings and double yellow lines within close proximity of this corner. Erection of a safety railing at this corner may provide some protection and regular spot checks by wardens and police highly recommended in an attempt to prevent selfish road use which will ultimately result in a fatality.
