Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

SLOW sign in poor state of visibility on approach to sharp right-angle blind bend in 30 mph zone of rural B480. Some vehicles approach the bend at speed and when out of the bend zoom up the narrow `skinny stretch` of B480 westwards towards the Crown Inn. Two recent accidents October 2020 (car) and May 2017(transit van). Both vehicles travelling from Henley towards the bend crossed the B480 crashed thru hedge and fencing of field on north side of the B480. The B480 highway at this bend is crossed by the Oxfordshire Way Bridlepath. Vehicular Traffic including farm and forestry vehicles share the footpathless B480 at this blind bend with walkers, runners, Duke of Edinburgh groups, cyclists, bikers, horse riders & post box users Please can this SLOW sign be repainted and the Slow sign west of the Crown Inn be reviewed .
