I would like to highlight that the traffic lights on Highbury Corner are a danger hazard, because the lower lights for the bikes are not clear to motorists. Today a woman got knocked off her bicycle. The lower lights for the cyclists turned green and the higher one red for the motorists. Unfortunately a lorry followed the lower green light, at the same time as a cyclist, resulting her being knocked off her bike. Mercifully she was not killed, badly hurt and very shaken as was the lorry driver. The same thing happened to me at the junction of Holloway road and St Pauls Road.
