The exit of Thomas lane onto Catford road (not indicated on map). Excessively long time on red during early morning. This is causing motorists to think lights are stuck on red and jump the lights. I am assuming it is because as traffic is light on Thomas Lane, allowing traffic to flow on Catford road has been prioritised, but as traffic is also light on Catford rd at these times it makes no sense and is simply dangerous.
