Does Hartlepool have a problem with motorists jumping red lights?

A COUNCILLOR axed from Hartlepool Borough Council’s cabinet is calling on Mayor Stuart Drummond to take up a campaign to tackle drivers who jump red lights.

Councillor Pam Hargreaves says it is a growing problem in Hartlepool, and was working towards a Red Means Stop campaign when she was sacked from the cabinet.

Coun Hargreaves, who was in charge of transport on the council, told how she was involved in a near miss at a busy town junction.
