More details from petition creator

The Drive, Onslow, is a dangerous hairpin junction. There is a lot of anecdotal evidence of accidents. Invariably, it is somebody turning left from the A31. They will turn directly in to the path of oncoming drivers (Southbound-up the 'The Drive’). Most avoid turning left here. Those who live in The Drive are unanimous in agreeing to a one direction flow. It has been long overdue from when the road had merely horses and carts upon it. Altering to one direction-Southbound, would prevent this. A benefit would be those emerging at the top would be at right angles with a much better sight of traffic from both directions. Where The Drive meets Crossways is another hazard brought on by some cars shooting downhill at speed. Any person wishing to cross over Crossways from east to west has to slowly enter the junction whilst looking up The Drive, lest somebody(idiot) shoots down the hill. This would cease. Another benefit, is that the metal fencing at the Crossways has been taken away for repair - again. A car slid on ice downhill from The Drive. With Southbound traffic only, this would cease. All benefits preventing injury, damage and cost.
