Unclear give way markings on Sunningwell Road.

Reported via desktop in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 17:55, Thursday 29 April 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Near miss accident on crossroads between Sunningwell road and Wytham Street. Approaching the crossroads from the A4144 direction. Combined issues with:

1) worn out "give way" white dotted line obscured by ambiguous red road surface 2) Triangle give way warning sign angle bent at a strange angle 3) reduced visibility from on-street parking (not anyone's fault- but makes the previous two harder to spot)

Did not realise I should have given way here until quite late. Luckily slow speed meant no harm done. Although I should have been able to see what remains of the markings/ signs earlier- hopefully by reporting this I can prevent an accident in the future! Fixing either the sign or the road markings should be enough to make this safer. Thanks
