Traffic Light Sensor NOT WORKING Correctly

Reported via desktop in the General Fault category anonymously at 11:02, Tue 29 March 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3423395.

This is an ongoing intermittent FAULT that has been reported several times PLEASE NOTE _ The fault is intermittent and is being caused by the angle of the sensor- so that ON OCCASION when the vehicle is not in the correct position for the sensor to recognise it - the lights will not change. This has even led to this resident seeing near misses with traffic proceeding through lights at red ! I helped out a lorry, that was stuck at the red light by going out, jumping up in front of the sensor and thus getting the lights to change as they should, (Weds 23rd March) so that the lorry could proceed Please can we have this looked at again as this is a potential deadly fault.
