Drivers often think they can turn right there into Tesco when the lights are green. They don't realise that the traffic going fron West Drayton towards Uxbridge won't stop for them. I think that The traffic lights need a filter arrow

Ah we were wondering how it could have happened that explains it as the impact was on the side of each car

There was another crash there today and all the emergency services were involved. I don't know if anybody was hurt but the car I saw was a mess. I spoke to one of my neighbours and she said that was the third crash this week.

I think it's about time the traffic lights were changed so that there's a filter system - it's so dangerous!

Which Tesco is this?

I assume it's the big one in Yiewsley (Yiewsley High St) or is the small petrol station one near Worcester Road in Cowley?

Yes, it's the big one in Yiewsley. Cars coming from Uxbridge turn right when the lights go green completely ignoring the fact that the traffic going from West Drayton towards Uxbridge has right of way.

I saw fire engines, police cars and an ambulance and all the traffic had to stop while they dealt with it. It happened just after 8 a.m. and I'm just glad I was walking and hadn't taken the car.
