Drivers in our town in the Gard have generally improved at stopping at crossings - I’ve been training them. 😀

You're probably not aware but stopping at the black crossings with the white stripes is not mandatory. It is however strictly enforced at the white ones with the black stripes.
I did say, the girl was already crossing which is why I legally and morally had to stop.😀

The car that hit me was a good 15-20 seconds behind me as it arrived when I was just about to set off again.

All orders were now issued through Squealer or one of the other pigs. Napoleon himself was not seen in public as often as once in a fortnight.

" She stopped behind another car at roadworks red light. Traffic coming the other way were still driving through when her light was on green."

Interesting I have never seen a green light at a roadworks, in my area its amber flashing

I really do know why the French don't stop at zebra crossings! Mostly.
