Nearly every one of 16 personal injury road accidents in Bushey during January was due to “sheer downright carelessness or disregard for normal road behaviour,” declared the chairman, Mr J.M.A. Hudson, at Thursday’s meeting of Bushey Road Safety Organisation.

“After going through the details of these accidents I was tempted to wonder whether we were simply wasting our time,” he confessed.

Police Inspector Ken Post was also of the opinion that most of the accidents could easily have been avoided. He said some of the accidents, particularly those which occurred in snow, were due to “sheer impatience”.
