A series of accidents at the intersection in Kłodzko
– Unfortunately, this reflects very bad behavior on the part of drivers. They do not look at the road and completely forget that when leaving the intersection, you should be especially careful, even if you are on the road with priority – says Leszek Pławiak from the “Autko” Driver Training Center.
The city is preparing a solution, they want to raise the pedestrian crossing
The mayor of Kłodzko assures that there are plans to rebuild the intersection.
– The so-called raised pedestrian crossings will be made of asphalt along Korytowska Street and Dusznicka Street, and lights with a 30-centimeter diameter will be added to each stop sign. Red, pulsating lights showing every driver that you need to stop here because you are on a minor road – says Michał Piszko, mayor of Kłodzko.
According to the driving instructor, increasing the pedestrian crossing may make cars “fly” there, but it will not solve the current problems. His ideal solution is to build a roundabout there.
