Blind spot on junction

Reported via desktop in the Blocking visibility on road/junction category anonymously at 12:06, Friday 8 March 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Gloucestershire County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5685717.

The junction at the end of The Street, onto Bear Hill. It is extremely dangerous as visibility either way is practically non existent. There is a useless mirror opposite, which is far too small to be of any use, and is often steamed up in the mornings. I have had a huge amount of very near misses here, and it’s only a matter of time before someone hits me. You really have to just hope for the best and go for it. It’s even worse in summer when the verges are overgrown.
