The cyclepath adjacent to the A415 through Burcot combined with heavily obscured property entrances is unsafe. Unfortunately, a cyclist was recently knocked off by a car pulling out of an obscured driveway. This is not the first incident of this kind and will certainly not be the last. Reasonable measures must be taken to ensure drivers can exit their property without the risk of this type of incident (e.g. moving the cycle path to the other side of the road, cutting back hedges, provision of convex mirrors).
