There's some good news for everyone who's ever sat at a seemingly unchanging red light too: TfL plans to refuse permission for new traffic lights unless a set somewhere else are removed. It's all part of Boris Johnson's grand scheme to keep London moving, which has also seen experiments in switching off traffic lights and countdowns on pedestrian crossings.
Sadly, Boris's largesse towards road users doesn't quite extend to repairing the roads. After last winter's big freeze, the roads were left looking like the surface of the moon with craters which while not quite large enough to accommodate a bus, would certainly do some serious damage to your suspension and probably leave you fuming by the side of the road with a bent wheel and a flat tyre. Maybe the pothole gardener can give the mayor a helping hand, though we suspect that this road in Brixton might prove a challenge even for him.
