Introduce pedestrian crossing times long enough for elderly disabled to cross. Legalise filtered junction crossings by cyclists with strict legal priority for pedestrians and carry out urgent programme of physically protected left-hand turns for cyclists.
Councils have put in traffic light timings which do not give enough time for children, the elderly or the disabled to cross the roads. It only requires 3 seconds added on at the average crossing to allow many more people to cross in safety . We urgently need councils & TfL to reprogramme lights to reflect the needs of vulnerable pedestrians who are being put at risk and disadvantaged by their policies .
In addition, help cyclists navigate junctions safely by introducing filtered crossings and protected left hand turns, like those proposed for the southern junction at Elephant & Castle .
