Dangerous corner. Accident waiting

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 04:34, Tuesday 30 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Parked cars have caused this corner to become very dangerous. It's now a blind corner on a residential street corner

This is an accident waiting to happen. I have had many near head on crashes. Its not safe. I do not mind cars parked on the grass (it has damaged the grass) but cars are being parked on pavements (illegal) and old people/pushchairs cannot get past.

Please can you support or point me in the right direction with some advice.

Thank you kindly

  • Sorry I should have added. During the night/morning is when you would witness most cars. You can see dead grass in spots where the cars park. Also tire tracks a cross the grass.

    Maybe around 7 or 8 cars on the corner. Also it's close to the T junction And and off road right on the corner. Making it especially dangerous.

    Thankyou for the support.

  • Hi sorry final update. Also I forgot to mention sometimes there can be 6 or 7 cars parked on the road on that corner. Outside people's houses which is fair enough. But combined with more cars on the grass. It's too much of a danger with delivery vans coming and going all day. Soo many close calls. You can't drive round the bend without knowing what is coming, your just hoping there's not a car coming round. If its a boy racer that's when it will be a head on crash. Lots of kids live around here too and we need to keep them safe. Thanks a lot for reading.

  • Hi

    Another head on incident. Had to slam on my brakes. Had to reverse backwards round the blind corner on the wrong side of the road. Absoloutley ridiculously dangerous with my kids in the car. Look forward to your reply. Before taking this to the police if needs be due to cars being on the pavement. Thankyou
