Today I was nearly knock over at 11.00 on the St Clements pedestrian crossing nearest The Plain. As I approached from the X3 Bus Stop on the south side of the road, I noted the worn markings and checked that the Belisha beacons were flashing to indicate that it was still viable. I presented myself squarely to the crossing, the car on my left stopped and I engaged eye contact. I looked to the other carriageway and engaged eye contact with the driver coming in a big bright blue SUV. He slowed and I took steps on to the pedestrian crossing, and then because a gap had occurred on the other side attempted to jump the crossing in front of me. Although this is a traffic offence, I am not sure he realised it was a pedestrian crossing given the state of the markings. You might wish to verify the incident on camera. I was wearing a pink dress, with white shirt and straw sun hat. Being 65 this incident is a concern.
