On 27 July I contacted Lambeth with the following complaint: “My son and I were very nearly hit by a car when crossing the road from Clapham Common using the pedestrian crossing where the A205 meets the A24 and Cavendish Road. The pedestrian light was green so we began to cross and a car drove straight as us. I was obviously furious with the driver but was calmed down by a cyclist who explained that the traffic signals are not clear for cars; he felt it wasn’t really the cars fault. Clearly something needs to be done to make this crossing safer. I’m very thankful that the car wasn’t going any faster and no one was hurt but this story could have had a very different ending”. Lambeth replied to tell me that they have forwarded my complaint to you but u am yet to receive more information.
Your report has now been resolved. Thank you for taking the time to report this to us. Should you need anything else or have any questions please contact customer services on 0343 222 1234

I would like to know how exactly my issue had been resolved. Cars continue to drive through the crossing when the pedestrian lights are green. The lights are not clear to cars. It is not safe. I worry that if something is not done soon there will be a serious accident.
