In 1999, then Newcastle United defender Andy Griffin was involved in a collision with a Metro train at the same level crossing when he tried to jump the lights
in his Porsche.
I have seen cases where once a traffic signal is about to switch to red, drivers actually speed up to jump the lights
Motorists jump the lights
at speed crossing along Rodney Street, making life a misery for pedestrians.
