Question

Thank you for your answer to my question 0202/2012 in which you make the point that your review of traffic lights "takes into account the cost of maintaining signals in the context of reduced funding for a great many public authorities". What is the average annual cost of maintaining a set of lights at a signalised pedestrian crossing and how does this compare to the average estimated cost to the public of dealing with one seriously injured pedestrian?
