Unsafe pedestrian traffic lights crossing
Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 20:42, Thursday 11 March 2021
Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS2602751.
If you are walking east to west along the south side of Worple Road and you go to cross Lower Downs Road, it is very unsafe. It looks as though there is a green man to cross but in fact that green man is only for the second half of the crossing. This is very misleading and I have seen several near misses where people are nearly hit by cars as they presume they can cross when they see the green man. It is more unsafe to have this green man system than to have no green or red man as it actively misleads and is incredibly dangerous.
