Drivers still illegally turning Right here despite signage

Despite another sign being put up here recently which states clearly and visibly no right turn, there has been no reduction in vehicles doing this, and ive had several near misses at this junction as a result over the years, last count it was 38, what will it take for something else to be done here, do I need to be seriously injured or dead before anyone does something to completely PREVENT this happening, as a wee sign on a post is doing exactly nothing.

  • My experience is negative, as despite another NO RIGHT HAND TURN sign being put up, its regularly being ignored by drivers of all types who use this as a shortcut from Melville to Palmerston via Manor and Chester. A simple bollard would prevent all of this. And not inconvenience anyone too much. It would also make turning into the street much safer here, as my 38 or so previous lucky escapes here seem to suggest to me.

  • HI There, this WAS fixed but this morning a bin lorry deliberately drove into the NO RIGHT HAND TURN sign whilst making an illegal no right hand turn across my path, the sign is now no longer visible again, and it saddened me to see it vandalised in that way, so the sign does not work, another measure is now required, as the danger has not gone away, and is in fact back worse than before. SORRY!

  • The sign was put up, then deliberately driven into as I watched days later, the sign was then fixed again, and still had absolutely NO effect, and in fact I yet again encountered someone leaving a parking space and ignoring both signs in order to turn illegally right and across my path, yet another close call and near miss, how many more do I have to deal with before something actually gets done here, do I need to lose a limb, become a cripple or die????????? DO I?????
