Unnecessary length of dropped curb

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 12:28, Friday 17 February 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

On January 12 a car driving towards High Street with the driver not paying attention drove onto the pavement where the dropped curb started at the south end of 4 Station Road and, because there was no jolt in doing so, the driver was not aware that they were on the pavement until they collided with the party wall bewteen my (I live at 48 High Street) garage, which needs the dropped curb only for my access, and 2 Station causing £40,000 worth of damage to this party wall and to No 2 Station Road. The unnecessary (long) length of dropped curbe needs to be replaced by a proper curb so that any car would notice if they had driven onto the pavement - which is very narrow and dangerous here anyway.

  • I support this request as I walk this route to take my children to the Primary School and have often wondered why it has this long dropped curb on such a narrow piece of path. Having a proper height curb would make us feel safer using this path

  • I agree as a local this needs to be fixed. Also a 20 mph speed limit would also make this road a lot safer as the road is narrow and people don't seem to know the width of their vehicles, accidents waiting to happen.

  • I support this proposal, as I was recently hit by the wing mirror of a car as it drove past whilst I was walking my children to school. If cars cannot safely pass each other they choose to drive onto the pavement rather than wait.

  • Thank you for raising this concern, apologies for the delay in response. We are investigating the location to see if removing the dropped kerb is suitable.
