Glaring error; You Say.

ROAD accident statistics released recently, suggest that the North West has more road traffic accidents than anywhere else in the country attributed to glare from the sun.

Surely some of these could be avoided if the elevation of a building and its windows were taken into account when planning permission is sought? Today, whilst travelling up Islington around 4pm, I could not help but notice the glare reflected by Falkland House, the green multi-storey, near the petrol station. As this effectively blinds motorists as they approach one of the two pedestrian crossings across this busy road, surely it's an accident waiting to happen, and one that our planning department should have seen coming?
