Peripheral Paintwork

The litany of bizarre 'SPAD reduction' gimmicks continues unabated, with the Northern Line now getting in on the act. Apparently, management seriously believe that painting the lower part of trainstops red will help prevent drivers starting up against red signals.

Management claim that the purpose is to provide 'peripheral information' to drivers. But don't peripheral objects painted in a bright, reflective colour distract your attention from the main thing you are supposed to be paying attention to?

No wonder management produced an SRCC without bothering to consult union reps.
