Safe Route into Town?

The crossing for cyclists and pedestrians across the Middleway by Percy Shurmer school is really frightening. Cars cross and turn, despite the signs forbidding it. I saw pedestrians nearly hit and cyclists lookng very anxious. Serious accidents have happened. Balsall Heath Is Our Planet has produced a report about this situation and made some suggestions as to how the junction could be made safer. This is national cycle route number 5 and there is a steady flow of people using it, as well as residents walking to the shops or school. Surely one place where motorists have to be restrained ?
Your ideas and coments are very welcome. A copy of the report is available on request from
