Comments: Traffic light at Pelican crossing opposite 128 Woodford Avenue is damaged after car collided with it on Sunday evening. Please fix asap as public are still using the pelican crossing. Only 1 traffic light is operational and may give rise to more traffic collisions during this holiday season. This is a serious safety issue. This is the second time a traffic light at this pelican crossing has been damaged due to speeding cars. Previous collision with traffic light was on 10-11-21. Thanks for fixing that one quickly.
