I don't know if anyone has the same issue as me, but walking up Northcote road in the direction of Clapham Junction, I always get surprised (and thankfully I never get hit) by cars appearing from Cairns road. The reason we can't see them coming is that there are a few storage containers (I think the florist's?) and so they don't see us walking and we don't see them.
I think people use that road to avoid traffic light on Battersea Rise. I really think one day someone will get hit.
Did it ever happen? Shall we mention it to the council? Should there be some signage, or should it become forbidden to turn into Northcote from Cairn's Road to prevent the rat race?
I'm curious as to what others think.
