  • I have recently had a car crash trying to pull out of our shared drive on Newland, no. 31 -37d. There are cars parked in the lay-by outside of our houses and it makes it impossible to see oncoming traffic without pulling out into the road. In 1994 we had traffic islands installed to prevent parking across our access, then in 2006 bollards placed on the islands to prevent parking on them. My accident is the second in the past few months and the sixth so far that I know of. Can the islands be extended to provide a better view of oncoming traffic? It is a busy road and I’m sure that mine will not be the last accident , I hope next time someone doesn’t get killed! Our access is basically a T junction and I cannot think of another T junction that you could park on. Please look into this before the next accident happens!!
