DRIVING through Hillsborough last week as the primary school pupils were getting out, I was met with mayhem.
Mothers in their 4x4s were pulling out without signalling, as other mothers, with their two or three children, were negotiating traffic coming in both directions.
I slowed down to allow a frantic mum and her two fledglings to manoeuvre between parked vehicles to cross the road – no sign of pedestrian crossings.
This is a chronic situation awaiting a serious, or (Heaven forbid) fatal, accident.
It's about time this picturesque village came into the 21st century.
