7 - 8, Broad Street, Banbury, OX16 5BN

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 07:19, Tue 23 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

We are a shop on ‘pedestrian ‘ Broad Street in Banbury high st. Cars are racing along here at crazy speeds and with the shops reopening I predict an accident happening soon. Are there any calming measures that could be put in place - signs or something.

Council ref: ENQ20868574

  • Thank you for enquiry - I'm guessing that you are towards the southern end of the pedestrianised part of Broad Street? The only speed related permanent signage that could legally be placed on the highway would be speed limit signs and this could only be done if the speed limit were reduced to 20mph. Unfortunately to do this would involve a lengthy and very costly consultation process which would need political and financial support from your local representatives. OCC does sometimes issue temporary 'Speedwatch' signs to local councils that can be fixed to street furniture as a reminder of the speed limit in force.
