Blind Spot

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 17:49, Saturday 12 January 2019

Sent to East Sussex County Council less than a minute later

On St Helen's Road, coming out of St Helen's Crescent to turn right on to St Helen's Road there is a blind spot as the house on the corner on the right has an overgrown hedge, and it is difficult to see the traffic coming, I was wondering if it was possible to fix a mirror on the lamppost or near it on the opposite side of the road so that vehicles could see what traffic is coming! This is a blind spot, and I feel it would save an accident occurring. I do have a drawing I have compiled myself but am unable to send it via this, if you send an e-mail in reply I can forward it to you. I am sure this will help drivers immensely. I have endeavoured to send this via your internet but without success as it keeps asking me to tick a box which is not there!

  • My reason for reporting this was to save an accident happening at this junction, I feel very strongly on things that I see could be a danger to road users. I use this road quite often and am in a taxi at these occasions so I can see the problems drivers have in seeing vehicles coming from the righthand side of the road. I hope it is done, I feel it will help drivers and save an accident happening!
