Clearer signage for nee 20mph from A40 roundabout onto The Hill in Burford

Reported via mobile in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 15:18, Sat 14 November 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The main 20mph sign if of course at the start of the road immediately off the roundabout but it is not that clear when drivers are more focussed on making sure the road is clear as they enter the roundabout. And cars are still speeding. The small signs are not obvious enough. Suggest a much clearer 20 sign/road painting at the crest of the Hill and also at the bottom of the hill as cars pick up speed, and from the other end after cars have cleared the bridge. Thank you.

  • Saying the signs meet the legal requirements wasn’t the issue. It was that they could be clearer or could have rumble strips to actually make the signs worth having, as at the moment they are almost universally ignored.

  • It is up to drivers to be aware of the environment they are in and take note of signing. The level of signing goes above and beyond that required by regulations and TVP have checked and are happy for the purposes of enforcement
