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.

" 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
