I hope this chap makes a speedy recovery. Speeding motorists searching for parking spaces and in a rush to get to work are a problem in this area. Most don't bother using their indicators and suddenly swing from taking a right turn then chaning their minds and taking a left. A pedestrian crossing facility is much needed here. These motorists are a menance.
