dont blame the roads.

slow down, concentrate. Majority of that road is 50mph and most people are travelling and overtaking me at 70 plus. i was recently overtaken at the bampton/buckland turn whilst i was traveling at the speed limit. crazy driving causes accidents

This road would benefit from regular police patrols to deter or catch those driving dangerously.

Another example where the speed camera is purely for revenue and does not help the safety of the road in the slightest.

The Buckland turnings have long been an accident (sorry, not allowed to use that term anymore) blackspot.

I have not used the road regularly for some years but remember thinking that a set of roundabouts would be beneificial although could cause the possibility of tailbacks.

I agree. I stick to speed limits & it royally frustrates me when another driver is driving so close behind me that they might as well be in my boot. I've seen some horrendous overtakes in my time as a driver and would love to know how some people passed their driving tests!!
