Dangerous filter for straight on

Reported via mobile in the Traffic Lights (permanent only) category anonymously at 01:44, Wednesday 29 June 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Approaching Headington Hill from St Clements with junction of Marston road there are two lanes, to turn left on to Marston road or to go straight on. The traffic lights may be red. Then they turn amber. Then the left lane filter goes green but the straight on stays red. Meanwhile the exit from Marston Road to St Clements goes green. Because the straight on traffic light turns amber I have seen vehicles almost collide when they start driving forward in amber. Then suddenly stop when the light stays red. Or when they see another vehicle or motorbike pull out of Marston road. In time if not already this will lead to an accident. The left filter should turn green omitting the amber.

Council ref: 3631910
