Bad road and signage markings

I am contacting you about the terrible signs on the road leading off the Bicester Village roundabout towards Bicester coming up to the Pringle field rugby/football club. Drivers know the left lane coming up to the football/rugby club is for Middleton Stoney and the right is for straight on but thanks to bad signs and lazy drivers, there’s always someone who gets into the left lane then “suddenly realises” they’re in the wrong lane and push in. The signs after/at the roundabout give the mistaken impression that both lanes are for Bicester town centre then it becomes apparent too late that the left lane is for Middleton Stoney ONLY. How do you report the bad signs to the council as have seen so many near accidents as either people suddenly push in from the left lane to right, or can’t get in so drive straight over the roundabout along with the single lane traffic in the right lane.

  • This happens 90% of the time! I've had so many near misses! There needs to be clearer signs leading up to that roundabout. You have to be on guard when approaching the roundabout from the south.
