The signpost (in the photo) has lost its black marking to indicate the warning of dangerous bends in the road.

Reported via mobile in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 17:59, Sunday 1 October 2023

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

There have been 3 accidents that i'm aware of in the last 6 months on the short stretch of road after the signpost. Two cars have ended up in the ditch, and one motorbike rider has come off their bike. There may well have been more accidents that i'm aware of. Basically there is an unusually long bend to the left (which goes on longer than you would expect) followed by a sudden short bend to the right. Without the proper road sign to warn drivers to beware of the 3/4 mile of bends, this road is very dangerous. At a minimum the current signpost needs replacing with one that is correct. But ideally, there should additionally be a chevron sign on the side of the road indicating the unexpected sharp turn to the right (after the long bend). Maybe this stretch of road needs a road safety assessment. Thank you so much.
