Speed not appropriate for Road due to blind bends which backs on to the rear of several properties-Unsafe

Reported anonymously at 16:06, Fri 23 August 2019

Hi, I have reported this concern previously however i believe after review no further action was taken. Since my initial reports a year ago I have had two cats killed and left on this road which are not isolated incidents. However the reason for my report is due to public safety. Today there has been two cars & a van which have lost control and mounted the verge one of which was nearly head on, there are several near misses daily and at night it is very disruptive as cars speed around the bends. The road is used by cyclist, walkers and children as there are connecting public footpaths and homes. I think the speed was once appropriate when there was clear line of sight across the field but now that there are houses here it has created blind spots which need to be reflected in the speed and potentially clearing some of the hedges may improve visibility. If i had children playing in my garden i would not feel comfortable that they would be safe as people are using the national speed limit sign as a target/challenge. Many Thanks
