Confusing priority signage

Reported via desktop in the Road sign damage category anonymously at 15:27, Monday 23 May 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3545416.

Reporting in this category as this issue doesn't really fit anywhere. The traffic calming at this point (20 mph speed limit) consists of road narrowing on one side and traffic priority arrow signs. The signs give the priority to the other direction but from both approaches to the location. This results invariably in confusion as many motorists hesitate not knowing who should move first. I know of a number of minor accidents and rod rage disagreements which have occurred both here and at another similarly laid out point in the village. In this case, I suggest that priority should be given to vehicles coming up the hill, i.e. leaving the village as the vehicles entering the village from the direction where the speed limit is greater should be the ones forced to slow down.
