Overhanging trees pushing traffic off road

Reported via desktop anonymously at 13:45, Tuesday 20 April 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council and South Oxfordshire District Council less than a minute later

So, I've tried reporting this already but no action. on this bend the trees overhang. They force tall vehicles into the middle of the road and traffic coming towards has to break hard and stop or drive off the edge of the road. The road edge is damaged and has been repaired a number of times but it just breaks up again because the traffic is forced over by the trees. There is a couple of feet of tarmac not being used - please can someone do some joined up thinking and cut back the trees rather than repeatedly trying to fix the road? Would be much safer for us lorry drivers... I approach very slowly but other drivers don't appreciate that we can't tuck in!
