  • The issue is the impatience of the motorists pulling out and then mis-judging the speed of the traffic. They often pull out expecting the car already on the A10 to slow down

  • How many more accidents at this junction!??? The road layout needs a serious rethink! Hope the rider has a speedy recovery.
