Long delays are expected on one of the county's busiest roads after it was closed due to a crash.

Emergency services are dealing with a collision involving a motorbike and a car on the A27 westbound by the Southerham roundabout at Lewes at 3pm.

The motorcyclist is being treated by an ambulance crew and the driver is unhurt.

Lane one westbound remains close on the A27 while lane two has been re-opened.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area if possible.

I saw a survey report that was 2 or 3 years old that stated 57,000 vehicles were using the A27 on an 'average', day, so although inconvenient to travellers, 1 in 57,000 is probably a lot lower than in some other areas.

Hardly a week goes by when the road is not closed due to an accident. Yet there never seems to be any inquiry as to why that is.

The problem is people can't read. Keep clear means exactly that. Don't enter the box unless you can get the other side. Try driving with your brain rather than your ego! The answer is to have some traffic lights. I would bring in mandatory re-testing every five years as how some of the idiots on the road passed their test I don't know. They must have bribed or slept with the examiner. Their driving skills and awareness of the highway code is appalling.
