Narrow passing point causes damage to cars

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 10:28, Tuesday 16 July 2019

Sent to Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

The new traffic calming/pedestrian crossing point is too narrow for two cars. Hit my front left tire on the kerb while trying to get through at the same time as another car and now need a new tire at >£100. Given the number of tire marks on the kerb (left side in image), I am not the only person to have suffered this.

Please change it to make it either wide enough for only one car, or widen it back to its original dimensions so that two cars can pass safely without damage.
