‘Prosecute over roundabout signs’

SIGNS placed at Birdcage Walk roundabout in Todmorden town centre are a “considerable” distraction to drivers, say safety campaigners.

Members of Todmorden Accident Prevention Council are demanding action be taken over them, believing they had, or may already have led to accidents.

Calderdale Council should not give authority for signs if they do so at present and if this is not the case should take positive action, says the safety group, prosecuting those who place signs and ensure they are removed daily.

Coun Ann James is to contact Calderdale traffic liasion officers over the matter.
