I was almost taken out by a driver yesterday who turned off from the A40 into the Home Farm driveway. He pointed to the give way markings saying he had right of way. He would have seen me coming but didn't slow down forcing me to break sharply in wet conditions and almost when over the handlebars.
According to the new highway code rules, vehicles should give way when turning into or out of a junction. Therefore, the giveaway markings should be placed on the exit of Home Farm and not on the cycle path.
Thank you for your suggestion, it will be added to a list which are assessed and prioritised by our Safety Team. We will now close this report, but if your suggestion gets selected for action we will let you know.

How can you close a report that unequivocally demonstrates a breach of regulations without addressing the issue. That is not how safety management works.
