A man was arrested last night after stopping at a red traffic light on Streatham High Road.
“It was a shocking piece of driving,” said local pedestrian Ed Fuller. “The light went amber and he braked slowly to a stop just a second after it had gone red. He showed a careless disregard for his own street cred.”
Local police confirmed that a man in his early thirties had been cautioned in relation to the incident. “He had stopped in the correct lane to turn left up into Leigham Court Road and was even indicating. He didn’t think of the impact this would have on the shoppers waiting to risk life and limb to sprint across to the Somerfield supermarket on the other side. Many required treatment for shock.”
“If only he’d been the South Londoner driving the Smart-1 probe at the weekend,” said Wizarre Borld’s source at ESA.
