Recession Proof

A controversial traffic system, thought to have cost motorists a third of a million pounds in fines this year, is set to be changed.

Transport for London (TfL) are considering a redesign of the box junction in Colliers Wood - and until this happens they have promised a “common sense approach” to fining drivers caught out by the complicated system.

The 26 metre long box is in Christchurch Road, near Colliers Wood Underground Station. The issue was brought up with TfL by Siobhain McDonagh, MP for Mitcham and Morden, who claimed that it had caught out 2,880 drivers this year - leading to more than £300,000 of fines.

I'm among the victims of this piracy. or should that be the 2,880 hardened criminals who have been dealt with by the Robin Hoods of Transport for London.
