Reckless Royal Mail driver caught on camera endangering lives in Crawley

This is the moment a reckless Royal Mail driver decided it was clever to mount the pavement and drive along it at speed rather than wait for a bin collection lorry to finish its work.

The alarming video was posted by Crawley Borough Council on their twitter page.

Having already passed the lorry and a waiting car the driver doesn’t pull back onto the road but stays on the path all the way to the junction.

The council has posted numerous videos recorded by the vehicles onboard cameras highlighting dangers that drivers are imposing on pedestrians.

A Royal Mail spokesperson:

“We expect the highest standards of behaviour from our people while out on deliveries and collections.

Royal Mail is investigating this matter as a matter of urgency and the appropriate action will be taken in this case.”

West Sussex raises alert level as more coronavirus cases are confirmed

Published

The current alert level in West Sussex has been escalated to “yellow” (raised local alertness) which means there is an increasing number of confirmed cases of coronavirus. This is in line with the increase in cases being seen nationally. There were 116 confirmed cases in West Sussex in the last seven days.

The County Council has introduced a traffic light system (green, yellow, amber and red) to keep residents informed about the current rate of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the county.

With the rise in cases, residents are being asked to take preventative action to stop the spread of the virus.

This includes following the “Rule of Six” which means you should not meet in groups of more than six people from outside your household both indoors and outdoors.

Residents should continue to wash hands regularly, practise social distancing, wear a face mask when appropriate and get tested when they have symptoms.

Amanda Jupp, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, said:

“So far in West Sussex we have seen a relatively low number of cases of coronavirus. However in line with national trends there has been an increase in recent weeks of the number of people who have tested positive.

“It is important we do all we can to keep numbers as low as possible. In line with government guidance, please do not meet in groups of more than six people. It is also important to continue to wash your hands regularly, keep socially distanced, wear a face mask where appropriate and get tested when you have symptoms.

“I am very grateful to all residents for their continued efforts to ensure the county remains safe. We have done so well to control the spread of COVID-19 in the county up until now and we are keen to keep it that way to ensure we can #KeepWestSussexSafe.”
