Opposite the exit to Alexandra Terrace

Reported via mobile in the Road sign damage category anonymously at 21:10, Sunday 14 April 2024

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 5851679.

Was not able to find the right drop down option but this is close enough to highlight the issue. As you pull out from Alexandra Terrace, the lane runs between two relatively high walls of the terrace front garden, due to street parking and the angle and height you are at when driving the car, it is literally impossible to see a car sometimes until it is coming past the closest parked car to the lane. Due to the nature of the road and the passing point half way and the visibility due to both ends of the road being lower than the passing point, cars can come past the lane at speed and it is very dangerous. You have to edge your car out as a driver and sometimes even have to guess that the road is clear, recently I have had to turn my music off and roll my window down to be able to hear if there is any traffic coming, that’s the only way it is safe to know if a car is coming. There is a serious need to a large convex traffic mirror to be positioned opposite the lane that allows drivers to be able to see if there is a car coming. I feel this is an accident waiting to happen if there is not. I have videos to support this and am happy to send them to whoever to allow for further information
