The government are concerned about the number of accidents occurring at Level Crossings. Apparently, ten people have died on them in the past year. Unfortunately, they are yet to come up with any new initiatives to improve safety standards on the crossings. They already have safety barriers and warning notices, but these are still proving insufficient. Personally, I think Level Crossings do a sterling job in cleaning up the gene pool.
If they really must make them safer, perhaps they should be looking are the surrounding environment, rather than wasting more of the tax payers money.
I've noticed that new branches of Greggs have been springing up everywhere. Now I don't blame Greggs for trying to cash in on the Porker Pound. It is just a case of basic Supply and Demand. However, common sense dictates that they should not be allowed to open up new outlets in the immediate vicinity of Level Crossings. Once those lard lovers get a whiff of those pies, no warning notices or safety barriers are going to stop them.
