Roundabout badly designed and dangerous

Reported in the Roads/highways category by Dan Huby at 11:36, Mon 12 November 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

This roundabout is very badly designed such that traffic on the A417 does not need to slow down and can continue in a straight line when heading north. This leads to constant issues pulling out of Farm Piece for residents, where traffic does not give way as they are not positioned to slow down and take a look, as is typical. See video of an incident this morning. watch?v=EmutE8jbbGI

  • Thank you for your report. The roundabout design would have been subject to technical approval before construction took place, this process involves 4 seperate stages of safety audit, there is a large direction sign prior to the roundabout for drivers travelling westbound that clearly shows the location of the roundabout, the video supplied shows an unfortunate instance of poor driving.

  • That's an unacceptable response. The video shows just one example of many instances not just only affecting myself but everyone else on the estate. Unfortunately it looks like it's going to take several serious accidents before you even take notice of this.
