Car insurance: Signs up 'but not lit'

Tuesday, 06 May 2008

Work still needs to be done to ensure that safety improvements at one accident-prone spot in Flintshire, Wales, come into force, according to advocates.

New flashing roadsigns have been installed on the B5126, campaigners have said, but are not yet working, reports the Wrexham Leader.

Something must be done as soon as possible, suggested councillor for Northop Hall Tony Sharps.

"I have been campaigning for months for these lights and a lot of people want them, but they're still not working. It's an absolute disgrace," he told the publication.

Confusion has reigned after a mix-up between Flintshire council and Manweb, the firm that is due to carry out the lighting operation.

The council must grant instruction so that the development can take place in the near future, Manweb's parent company Scottish Power said.

Another campaign has recently started in Devizes to get lower speed measures put in place after a number of incidents there.

Drivers involved in accidents may find that their car insurance premiums are impacted upon.
