Misleading chevron sign on dangerous steep bend

Reported anonymously at 10:53, Monday 21 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and Vale of White Horse District Council 2 minutes later

Having left A417 travelling towards Little Petwick farm the chevron sign ( designed for traffic heading towards A417) has moved so it appears (as you travel away from A417) to signal that the bend goes to left when in fact it is a STEEP right hand bend. With clocks changing & road being very dark this could be VERY dangerous. Route especially busy at moment as its a "cut through" to avoid delays in East Challow.
