Traffic and Highway Patrol Commander, Assistant Commissioner John Hartley said he was appalled to hear about the recent collisions.
“Yesterday I asked for motorists and pedestrians to take more care on the roads but it appears my appeal fell on deaf ears," Assistant Commissioner Hartley said.
“This morning police responded to four separate incidents in which pedestrians were hit by cars; each one on a marked or controlled pedestrian crossing.
“One poor woman had her and her child’s life thrown into danger when they were struck by a car while she was pushing a pram across the road.
“It is amazing no one was killed during these incidents."
Assistant Commissioner Hartley said in the vast majority of cases the pedestrian is not at fault."
He also urged all road users, motorists and pedestrians, to take more care around crossings.
“If people do not start paying more attention and abiding by the road rules then it is only a matter of time before we have another death on the roads.
“My message to motorists and pedestrians is clear.
“Don’t be impatient, pay attention to the road, avoid unnecessary distractions and slow down."
