Dangerous area to cross road

Reported via mobile in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 22:03, Thu 22 October 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2353490.

There is a drop kerb outside 1 Alnwick Close where lots of children cross going to school. Yesterday a large Land Rover was parked next to it, I could not see past it, tried to cross the road with my children and a car came out from behind the parked car, at speed, and nearly knocked us over. There needs to be a zebra crossing here and speed restrictions. It’s dangerous to cross this road but it is the only way I can walk to school
