Clowning around with traffic

In the last two years 13 people have been hit by buses in Wellington.
One of those 13 died as a result.
So for the capital to be hosting an international safety conference seems more than appropriate.
The star speaker of the conference agrees we have serious safety problems but he also has some completely wacky ideas on how to change that.
One of those involves clowns, and he's not kidding.
He and reporter Whena Owen went for a stroll around Wellington's CBD.
Watch the video.

A bus will hurt or damage someone even if it's going ten k/hr... they are big... most Wellington buses go slowly through the areas where the people get hit... they walk between buses without looking, they cross roads without looking, the focus on phone calls and not on traffic... educate the pedestrians... perhaps the media could write articles entitled "Person Walks in Front of Moving Bus" rather than "Bus Hits Pedestrian".... just a thought :0

Instead of creating barriers, blaming motorists etc - why don't they just teach Wellingtonians how to cross the road properly!! What happened to the training our Mums gave us when we were little - look right, look left, look right again, and THEN cross if the way is clear! Come on people - take some personal responsibility for your actions!

On the June 6, after rugby training, someone hit Stephen Dudley. It cost the Kelston Boys High School student his life at 15 years old.
Conservation Minister Nick Smith says the decision he is about to make is the toughest of his career.
Is it easier to get a parking ticket in Wellington, or in Auckland?
