Frustrated residents are forced to paint their OWN pedestrian crossing on a busy road – and instead of solving the tip, the municipality claims it's DANGEROUS
- Residents have painted their own pedestrian crossing in Rockingham, Perth
- The fake pedestrian crossing on Makybe Drive came on the weekend
- A city councilor said it will be removed because it is a danger to road users
A fake pedestrian crossing is popping up on a suburban road, confusing drivers.
The crosswalk was painted on a street in Rockingham, near Perth, with warnings from a city council member who said it poses a security risk.
Matthew Whitfield, of the council, then posted a photo of the crossing on Facebook and said it had not been approved by the council.
& # 39; This is not a supervised crossing and does not meet safety standards & # 39 ;, he wrote.
& # 39; I'm not sure who painted this (in all honesty they did a great job!) And would love to hear from someone about it (someone has been noticed who painted a pedestrian crossing on a pretty busy road!).
& # 39; The city will remove these markers as quickly as possible. & # 39;
Whitfield suggested that a & # 39; frustrated resident & # 39; perhaps painted the crossing.
The fake pedestrian crossing is only a few meters away from a legitimate intersection, a roundabout, a school and a busy shopping center.
Mr. Whitfield said the fake walkway posed a significant safety risk.
& # 39; It is in a dangerous location and it is too close to a roundabout. It's confusing people, & he said Nine news.
Despite his concerns about the location, Mr. Whitfield said he was impressed by the reconstructed crossing.
