Imminent danger to life due parking on St. Helens Avenue. Benson oxfordshire

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 12:24, Tuesday 11 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Parking on St. Helens Avenue in benson on the junction of Saxon court has become a massively dangerous issue. Cars are parked beyond the corners continuously causing blindness to the residents of Saxon court who are trying to access St. Helens Avenue. After nearly getting hit twice myself, I have spoken to other residents of Saxon court and others have experienced near misses on exiting our road. The parking has got beyond control with people actually parking across Saxon court exit. I wish this complaint to be recorded as an imminent danger to life as without doubt, sooner or later there is going to be a fatality. Most of the people parking, I have witnessed walking over to the riverside for cafe or leisure. There needs to be yellow lines on the roadside where Saxon court meets St. Helens Avenue before a serous injury or death occurs. Our View on exit is completely blocked and residents have to edge out into the road to join St. Helens Avenue and this is massively dangerous as I and other residents have already experienced. I am sending a copy of this report to benson parish council and John Howell, our local MP

  • This is getting ridiculous and worse by the day. See how this car is parked over the entrance/exit to Saxon court totalling blocking our line of vision. Please do something!!
