Russell Hill Road is still a dangerous, winding road. It now bears the signs "care, speed humps" and leads into the busy red route at Purley Corner.
A simple prayer vigil will be held at the site at midday on the centenary to remember all who have died on our roads over the past century, estimated at half a million people. A century after Lindfield's death, we have still not yet learnt how to tame speeding drivers.
