The grass verges on the bend at the junction of Crown Lane and Watlington road ( as shown in the in the photographs) are now at the point where an accident will happen at some point. When pulling out of my drive it is necessary for me to partially keep to the footpath to avoid be being hit by vehicles coming round this bend, which they do at speed. If you can’t get this sorted soon can I have your permission to engage someone privately to do so (at my expense)
