Pensioner Fined 130 Pounds for Painting his own Zebra Crossing On the Road


London: A pensioner who painted his own zebra crossing, speed bumps, and 10 mph limit on Road, has been fined 130 Pounds. 

The 78-year-old pensioner, who had difficulty crossing the road with his disabled wife, had complained to the local council about passing cars near his home, claiming that 5,000 cars use the road daily. 

It was difficult for him to get to the other side of the road.  He was fined 130 130 for criminal damage after a police investigation. 

He is from Christchurch, Dorset. Police have investigated 78-year-old Lori Phillips and called a police station to investigate allegations of criminal damage.

 He was tired of requesting a crossing near his home and town hall officials did not respond.

Lori Phillips, 78, woke up at 5 a.m. to mark the road leading to Medford Cove, a popular beauty spot for walkers, and 5,000 cars use the road daily. Remained for 4 days and the traffic followed which made this road safe for his wife, elderly people, and families with children.

They came to remove the crossing and asked Lori to report to the police, she was fined and a community resolution order was issued.

Lori described the police investigation as a waste of police time, which has left her depressed. The only issue is the permanent crossing at this place to improve the safety of pedestrians. 

He spoke to council chief Vicki Slayer and local Muddford councilors, as well as the officers in charge of painting the line, and gave a clear warning that if they did nothing, he would paint it himself. He got no answer. 

According to the newspaper Mail, he personally spent 100 100 on the equipment and three people spent two hours painting it. Neighbors praised his work but the council scrapped it.

Lori said that as a service provider under the Equality Act 2010, the council has a responsibility to make appropriate adjustments for people with disabilities. According to the newspaper, Lori has also started a petition for installing zebra crossings which have been signed by 100 people. 

It will go to the BCP Council in due course to decide on its effectiveness, the spokesperson said, adding that we will carefully review the application along with other applications to see if the crossing at this point It would be appropriate to set up.
