Is this a known danger spot? I crossed yesterday morning about 11am and got screamed at by a motorbiker as his tyres smelled of burnt rubber. Today a friend of mine just rang me to say he nearly ran me over at the same place. Of course I checked the road. I'm scared to cross the road again tomorrow in case it is 3rd time unlucky...
Do you mean the junction of Friern Road (where 12 buses stand) with Lordship Lane? Did you try and cross using the island? This can be dicey as cars coming round the bend from The Grove do tend to speed. Best bet to walk down to lights outside Dulwich Library.
One of the big problems is cars accelerating from the lights at the Plough towards Forest Hill - especially the boy racers who go into the (left-turn only) bus lane alongside the Plough. Instead of turning left into Barry Road, they accelerate from the lights to get past the queue of cars in the right hand lane. By the time they get to Friern Road, they're already in 3rd/4th gear, doing 40 on Lordship Lane.
Not sure how you stop them, others than cameras at the lights and along Lordship.
