OUTSIDE Southwark Tube Station, the pedestrian crossing is blessed with “countdown technology”. The number tells walker how long they have to cross the road before the lights turn green and all hell is unleashed. Says one black cabbie:

“It’s a step in the right direction. What we need now is a countdown on the red lights to who long before I can catch one.”

Look out for road safety campaigners warning schoolchildren not to start the Chicken Dash when the number hits ‘2’…
