Safety issue - no signs, no road markings, or even a mirror

Reported via desktop in the Road traffic signs category anonymously at 00:17, Tue 8 June 2021

Sent to Hampshire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 2775841.

I live in Boulter Lane, street reference number 44304490. While attempting to exit Boulter lane towards Bunkers Hill and Denmead is extremely dangerous and challenging. Cars consistently speed past our road at 60mph, trying to pull out safely with such a limited view of the oncoming traffic is proving almost impossible. There are no signs, no road markings, or even a mirror on the main road indicating rural street.

My kids and I experience more than enough close calls, as my kids attend school in Denmead, the near miss that happened this morning while taking kids to school has shaken me up so fiercely that I have chosen to get in touch to beg for you to look into the issue we face on a daily basis. While I was pulling out of Boulter Lane turning right towards Denmead, 2 cars coming from Southwick Village direction doing 60mph came so close to hitting my car as I was not visible to them when I was exiting Boulter lane and instead of slowing down they decided to speed up forcing me to slam my breaks and coming to a full stop on the wrong side of the road because they knew they wouldn't be able to stop in time leaving my children petrified and in tears.

Please understand that this is not the first time, this keeps reoccurring on a daily basis and causes extreme anxiety when attempting to leave my own street due to the lack of safety precautions and high speed limits. What I really do not understand is further down the road towards Southwick Village, Castel Road has been limited 30mph with road markings, sufficient signage and even a mirror to provide better visibility of oncoming traffic compared to Boulter Lane which has no road markings, no signs no mirror with no visibility of oncoming traffic due to the road layout and a 60mph speed limit.

Please for the sake of my children and safety of other families on the street, to prevent tragedy from happening review this case.
