About half the traffic collisions in the Lewes Road area are caused by “failure to look properly”. This is higher than the average for the rest of the city.  The council’s “Share the Roads, Share the Responsibility” campaign has been run a couple of times in the area – focussing on phone and MP3 player distraction.
