AN URGENT review of road safety is needed after the death of a Brighouse man, says a councillor.
On Sunday, a 75-year-old was killed after being involved in a collision with a car at Bradford Road.
One of the two dogs the man was walking was also killed.
Police have arrested a 31-year-old Huddersfield man on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.
It’s the third death at Bradford Road in as many years and it’s prompted calls for a review of safety improvements in the town, which doesn’t have a single speed camera.
Clr Colin Stout said it was not about making money, but warning drivers to reduce their speed.
He said: “I am aware a man has been arrested and that the police investigation is ongoing.
“What we as a council have to look at is what we can do to improve safety.
“It’s another person killed on our roads and it’s another person too many. It’s the third death on Bradford Road in as many years.
“I don’t know how many times we need to ask for a review of road safety measures before we get something?”
There are no speed cameras in the Brighouse area at present, although there are several on the Calderdale Way in Elland.
Clr Stout added: “I’m not interested in it as a revenue-making exercise, but something needs to be done to improve safety.”
