Title

Accident at Oxford Road and Half Way Tree Road intersection

Description

"The traffic lights at Oxford Road and Half Way Tree Road intersection, do not prevent accidents like that pictured above happening with increasing frequency. This has caused speculation on whether the phasing of the lights is faulty, or whether more colour-blind motorists travel by this intersection than any other traffic light controlled intersection. The crash above was captured by our photographer on Friday afternoon."
