People still probably would take a chance and dash across the road, where theres a footbridge theres always someone that don't use it, where is the nearest foot bridge across the 127 nearby..? and what about those extra high fences further up i presume.

There is a footbridge, down by the Bell pub several miles away near Southend, maybe one at Laindon where the pub used to be.

Troubles is they will never be where we want them to be!

All of those old roads that the 127 cut through should be bridged for pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders.
How many more people have to die before something is done.

I know the spot and despite several notices this place is a known fatal accident site. There are people who live adjacent who totally ignore signage to play Russian roulette with their own lives and the lives of others. I've seen them doing it.

Anyone trying to cross the A127 especially at night is taking extremely high risks - a totally foolhardy decision. Also what is there to cross over for at that time of night? There's pretty well nothing much on the other side that is of any use after normal hours.

I feel for the car driver. Must have been a hell of a shock.

Sad story, but for goodness sake, why would anyone attempt to cross such a road. Complete madness.

I don't understand how you can get killed crossing a road. You simply look and if there's something coming you wait, and if theres not you go.. It's hardly rocket science. And don't say you might not be able to judge how fast a car is going. Bullsh*t. A 10 year old should be able to navigate his way across a road. Even the A127. If he couldn't do that, then he was under the influence of drink or drugs. Simple as.

Ok then I shall re-comment. How about having some decency towards the loved one that have lost their family member that may read these comments? Yes I agree it is a comments page, but anybody decent commenting on any fatality report would surely have the heart to not write such harsh comments! So have heart and think of those that have lost their husband, dad, uncle, brother! None of us know whats around the corner.

I feel sorry for the family of the man killed and the driver. Both have my condolences

But you don't understand how someone could be killed crossing a 50mph dual carriageway, in the dark and late at night?
Although I do not know for certain, I imagine the pedestrian was in a dark coat (logical as most winter clothes are dark) The poor driver probably did not see him in time to react, and the man was hit. As a driver you're not expecting someone trying to cross that road there - though I have seen it in daylight. It'd be like playing a cross between Frogger and Russian Roulette. And as a pedestrian, have you tried to estimate the speed of a car? and at night? you may run quick, but the car will be quicker than you can imagine

I agree, this isn't the place for the "thought police".

My thoughts go out to the car driver, he must feel awful.
