The impact of Sunday night at the intersection of the Pirroen did the discussion about the insecurity in the area again flare up. “For twenty years I am together with other neighbours on the barricades to solve the problem,” says Isabel Devos (51), which runs along the oudenaardse steenweg has a beauty salon. “The establishment of a verkeerscomité, numerous meetings, an action in which we the street symbolically closed, it all has nothing taken out. During the day it is not safe here. A friend of my daughter was on the pedestrian crossing, run over, someone from the neighborhood happened to be the same. A drunk driver was driving the parked car in the mush of a young couple. A grand total of one day old car. Trees falling, traffic lights will be run over. You can't believe it.”Read also street race goes wrong: BMW stores to be dashed to pieces against traffic light Street racing
an Additional problem is the irresponsible driving, night on the oudenaardse steenweg. “Every night we are woken up by the sound of racing cars,” says Isabel. “There is also often a red light driving. Every time we keep our hearts fixed. Sooner or later, fall victims.” The number of accidents in the vicinity is not much more to count. The youngest dates from Sunday night, when a heavy BMW rammed a Mercedes A45 AMG in less than a week old, probably during a street race. Both drivers knew each other. The BMW slammed to death against the lights, a 24-year-old man from Kortrijk got slightly wounded.
