The pedestrian button on the Otter Road side of Greenford Road either isn't working or only remains on for a few seconds. This doesn't allow the pedestrian to get to the point where they can activate the overhead sensor. Without this the lights will not change. Added to this is the fact that there is a large puddle in the road, presumably caused by a blocked drain. So, a combination of trying to get the lights to allow crossing without getting soaked encourages people to cross the road when they think that there is a gap in traffic. Very dangerous, particularly as there is a primary school and nursery next to the church. There is also a high school a little further down the road. This is a recurring problem, which is fixed for a while and then happens again.
