Explain your idea further

Since the new layout on the traffic lights has been in place I've noticed that many cars have been wrongfully turning left when driving northbound up the road and turning onto park road. This is a major problem since the pedestrian crossing lights are green allowing students to walk across park road. Cars are ignoring the no left turn sign and are narrowly missing the crossing students. My self and others have almost been hit on many occasions. 

How would your idea benefit students?

This would benefit students as they will be safer when crossing the road when walking to their lessons.

How could your idea be implemented?

I would suggest speaking to the local council to have more signs put up further down the approaching road to encourage and inform drivers they cannot left turn.

The cabinet member for Traffic & Transportation at Portsmouth City Council has been contacted about this issue. In turn, she has requested more police presence and the construction of a new, clearer no left turn sign on Anglesea junction. I am still waiting on an update.
