Dangerous roundabout

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Some people driving from Horspath Driftway towards The Slade, don't slow down at all, and cut through the roundabout with more than 30 mph, causing people coming from Hollow Way to not being able to drive into the roundabout safely. I would suggest installing a speed ramp on the Horspath Driftway until it is too late and have someone die in a car accident. I must remind that driving into a roundabout should be at speeds of 10-15 mph, not 30-40 mph, and if this can't be achieved, measures should be taken. The reason that some people don't slow down when entering the roundabout is because they have a good visibility and The Slade and Horspath Driftway are almost in a straight line, which would confuse people by giving them the impression that they are on a main road, and they don't need to slow down, or give way to cars already inside the roundabout.
