Morden Road Crash (yet another one)

Looking back over my previous posts there seems to be a pattern emerging: the words "Morden Road Crash" seem to occur rather frequently. So why change a winning formula?

Here’s a picture of evidence of the latest one, taken yesterday (19th July 2011):

This is exactly the point (to within a couple of feet) where I previously witnessed a crash. The road is configured with two southbound lanes at this point, so cars can jostle for position. Undertaking at speed is common. No wonder this is one of Merton’s most dangerous road. Even more alarmingly, you can’t escape the danger on foot. The footway is very narrow at this point and children walk to school in both directions along it. There are no proper crossings for about a mile. It’s quite common to see people cycling on the footway, which is quite understandable as the road conditions for cyclists are not for the faint-of-heart. More here.
