There is no longer a right filter traffic light turning onto Ritherdon road from Balham High Road. Causes chaos

Reported in the Lamp out (traffic lights) category anonymously at 09:32, Tue 22 September 2020

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2306142.

There is no longer a right filter traffic light turning onto Ritherdon road from Balham High Road. Causes chaos.

There was one and now it is gone.

With a no left turn onto Ritherdon from Balham High Road from the other direction - turning onto Ritherdon is now very difficult. By the way - the no left turn should be reversed. Instead consider a give way to cyclists.

As an aside - often cyclists ignore red lights. They have no insurance ans pay no road tax. That should change. There should be a fee to use the cycle lanes.

  • The lights on ritherdon road to Balham High road are on red for 90 seconds and green for 10 seconds. Barely any cars can get onto the high road and the traffic building up outside my house on Ritherdon Road is disgusting. Cars are static and pumping out pollution. These lights need adjusting asap.
