I use this junction many times a day as I live nearby, Cars drive fast down Ditchling Road towards Brighton, add a car pulling onto Ditchling Road and sometimes you end up with an accident.
I sincerely hope all are ok.

There seems to be a lot more traffic coming down towards Brighton recently. Is this because of the work on Lewes Rd? The queue for the traffic lights at Fiveways was back in the 40mph part of the road yesterday at about 8.45am. The cars weren't coming from dropping off children at school.

With the current crackdown on parking on the pavement, will the cars opposite the school be moved on?

If the driver who was cut from the vehicle had been a man, would the headline have been "Male driver cut out of car after crash"? This is typical Argus sexism. The sex of the driver is irrelevant - just hope she and any other injured people make a speedy recovery.
