A PENSIONER is calling for extra street lighting near two schools after he was almost knocked off his scooter.

Geoff Rodgerson, 82, of Manor Grove, Royston said he had a near miss with a woman who was picking kids up from Royston St John the Baptist Primary School, where there are only two street lights.


Geoff Rodgerson said: "It's just not bright enough, there really does need to be some more lighting on those streets. It is so dangerous, it's an accident waiting to happen."

Is it dark when kids finish school? I don't think I understand the issue; is he concerned about pedestrians knocking him off his scooter or cars? And we're talking scooter as in a moped, right? Not a mobility scooter ...
