Very slippery road, 20mph max speed needs to be lowered to 5mph!

Reported via mobile in the Safety Bollard - Damaged/Missing category anonymously at 18:32, Mon 30 November 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2412306.

Pulled onto the roundabout from stationary on A5076 heading south, was only travelling a max of 15mph and heading towards the second exit. Got to the first exit and car skidded across the road from side to side. Completely lost control and ended up on the grass verge, nearly crashed into a lampost. Saw a few other cars skid after me. Max speed of 20 mph is still dangerous! Can’t believe I am in one piece, please lower the speed limit to 5mph and put skid risk signs before the roundabout, as this was so scary and I do not wish this upon anyone else!
