The A27 has been reopened in both directions following a serious accident in the early hours of the morning.

Emergency services shut the road in both directions between Station Road (Drusilla's Roundabout, Alfriston) and A26 (Beddingham) for more than eight hours after the accident.

Officers were called at 1.26am to the incident near Middle Farm after a Renault Clio travelling westbound hit a Ford Focus travelling eastbound.

The 36-year-old driver of the Renault Clio, from Bexhill, suffered serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton.

The other driver, a 23-year-old man from South Ockendon, Essex, also suffered serious injuries and was taken to the Royal Sussex.

His passenger, a 26-year-old man from London, suffered minor injuries.

The road was closed in both directions for an investigations to take place and to clear debris and an oil spillage. Part of the road surface has also been damaged.

The road was reopened at 9.45am.

Firefighters from Lewes had to cut one of the drivers free.

Sergeant David Morgan said: "We are appealing for witnesses to this serious collision. I am particularly keen to speak to the driver of a white van who was travelling eastbound and flashed his headlights at another vehicle possibly warning him of the collision ahead.

"We also want to thank motorists for their patience while the road has been closed."

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or email collision.appeal@sussex.pnn.police.uk quoting Operation Earlham.

Well, firstly you can't spell, secondly you show little concern for the occupants of the vehicles and lastly, you can get to Drusilla's via Littlington. 1st left after Exceat Bridge on the A259.

We might as well stop caring about the A27, because it does seem to be turning into the Middle East. I've posted many a comment about practical measures to deal with this menace, because it is essentially a cultural one. The default response on here seems to be to show every sympathy and empathy going, while my calls for lower speed limits, traffic calming and enforcement are met by the usual screams of 'motorists are just cash cows', and the accompanying obligatory 100+ thumbs down. If this is you, I suggest that you take a good look in the mirror, because YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Over to you thumb downers.

Why on earth did Youlikemyjugs make some really irrelevant and quite frankly, idiotic comment about a spelling mistake when someone was clearly asking for some friendly advice?

The Middle east???? Jesus, what is wrong with some people that comment on this site? Get out from behind your keyboard mate, and get a grasp on reality, please!

Its a road, if people drive recklessly or speed or try dangerous overtaking, they will crash, like they always have on every road in the world.

It hardly represents the Middle East you simple minded fool.

You missed the point 'whatsisname', lighteninglee was seemingly only concerned with himself, not the occupants of the vehicles that's why he was vilified.

Its called 'Sensibility'.

Yay hay, the retarded, inbred, death-loving, Sussex scroaties have not disappointed. You don't seem to recognise a metaphor, so I might as well just type abuse. Your powers of expression and comprehension must be limited. I feel sorry for you.

I don't really care about the world's road network, because I only use the UK's roads, so I think it is pretty valid that I should care about traffic calming, speed limits and enforcement for a facility that I both use and pay taxes towards.

I don't care what the rest of the world gets up to. I only used the Middle East as a metaphor because it's been in the news a bit lately. If you don't recognise a metaphor, you might need to look it up.

Oh boy, you really are a bit 'special' aren't you!

My powers of expression and comprehension are limited? Whatttt?

OK, point taken that you don't care about the worlds road network, so allow me to try again... Its a UK ROAD, if people drive DANGEROUSLY (in the UK), or SPEED (in the UK), or try DANGEROUS OVERTAKING (in the UK), they will indeed be involved in a collision. Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.

I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them. I might come back to it later, because they are going to be building some new roads (including an upgraded A27?) to try to get re-elected.

I know that there are speed cameras, but these only police locations, and are not pro-active in dealing with bad behaviour, because some cheeky motorists will only slow down for the cameras, and speed up between them, which seems to cause these frequent collisions nowadays.

The Middle east???? Jesus, what is wrong with some people that comment on this site? Get out from behind your keyboard mate, and get a grasp on reality, please!

Its a road, if people drive recklessly or speed or try dangerous overtaking, they will crash, like they always have on every road in the world.

It hardly represents the Middle East you simple minded fool.
Yay hay, the retarded, inbred, death-loving, Sussex scroaties have not disappointed. You don't seem to recognise a metaphor, so I might as well just type abuse. Your powers of expression and comprehension must be limited. I feel sorry for you.

I don't really care about the world's road network, because I only use the UK's roads, so I think it is pretty valid that I should care about traffic calming, speed limits and enforcement for a facility that I both use and pay taxes towards.

I don't care what the rest of the world gets up to. I only used the Middle East as a metaphor because it's been in the news a bit lately. If you don't recognise a metaphor, you might need to look it up.
Oh boy, you really are a bit 'special' aren't you!

My powers of expression and comprehension are limited? Whatttt?

OK, point taken that you don't care about the worlds road network, so allow me to try again... Its a UK ROAD, if people drive DANGEROUSLY (in the UK), or SPEED (in the UK), or try DANGEROUS OVERTAKING (in the UK), they will indeed be involved in a collision. Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.
I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them. I might come back to it later, because they are going to be building some new roads (including an upgraded A27?) to try to get re-elected.

I know that there are speed cameras, but these only police locations, and are not pro-active in dealing with bad behaviour, because some cheeky motorists will only slow down for the cameras, and speed up between them, which seems to cause these frequent collisions nowadays.

Bad driving, as always.
2 cars can't crash into eachother on a road in good weather unless 1 of the drivers is driving dangerously.
The usual suspects want to blame the road. Well, roads don't cause crashes. Bad drivers do.
The answer is to deal with bad and dangerous driving with much stricter penalties and much longer driving bans.
I think it is a disgrace that somebody who gets behind the wheel of a car after drinking is usually allowed back on the roads after just 1 year.

Attention everybody, I'm back !

I have been using the A27 for 44 years and there have always been accidents due to careless driving/stupidity, whatever you will call it.
You can only make a road safe if nobody uses it.
This part of the A27 from Polegate to Beddingham has always been dangerous and although many people have tried to get it upgraded nobody wants to know. So blame Central Govt for leaving us with a road the Saxons built originally.

The whole Beddingham to Polegate stretch is an issue, because it is a long distance trunk road (tired drivers?), with a 60mph speed limit, and a high risk of head-on collisions. There seem to be too many collisions on the A27, but those on this eastern stretch do seem to be more inclined to be fatal. I think the Government might just announce a dualling of this road in early December.

This still leaves issues with long stretches of dual-carriageway, because the A3 has been upgraded substantially the whole way from Portsmouth to the M25, but it is still a windy country road, and not a motorway, as many people seem to think.

The Middle east???? Jesus, what is wrong with some people that comment on this site? Get out from behind your keyboard mate, and get a grasp on reality, please!

Its a road, if people drive recklessly or speed or try dangerous overtaking, they will crash, like they always have on every road in the world.

It hardly represents the Middle East you simple minded fool.
Yay hay, the retarded, inbred, death-loving, Sussex scroaties have not disappointed. You don't seem to recognise a metaphor, so I might as well just type abuse. Your powers of expression and comprehension must be limited. I feel sorry for you.

I don't really care about the world's road network, because I only use the UK's roads, so I think it is pretty valid that I should care about traffic calming, speed limits and enforcement for a facility that I both use and pay taxes towards.

I don't care what the rest of the world gets up to. I only used the Middle East as a metaphor because it's been in the news a bit lately. If you don't recognise a metaphor, you might need to look it up.
Oh boy, you really are a bit 'special' aren't you!

My powers of expression and comprehension are limited? Whatttt?

OK, point taken that you don't care about the worlds road network, so allow me to try again... Its a UK ROAD, if people drive DANGEROUSLY (in the UK), or SPEED (in the UK), or try DANGEROUS OVERTAKING (in the UK), they will indeed be involved in a collision. Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.
I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them. I might come back to it later, because they are going to be building some new roads (including an upgraded A27?) to try to get re-elected.

I know that there are speed cameras, but these only police locations, and are not pro-active in dealing with bad behaviour, because some cheeky motorists will only slow down for the cameras, and speed up between them, which seems to cause these frequent collisions nowadays.
Which part of this road in particular do you feel is the most dangerous? How often do you use this stretch of road? (serious question)
I use Polegate to Beddingham quite often, but not as much as I used to

Agreed. 50 limit would be a start.
Firle Straight already has a 50 limit starting just west of Middle Farm. I do wonder whether one of the cars was overtaking when they could not see whether the road was clear in the other direction, as just east of there is a dip and some bends, also there are hedges either side of the road so a car driver might not be able to see round.

Also further to the east is Selmeston village where the limit drops to 40 due to some tight bends.

No, over eight hours to cut the drivers out of a mangled mess of metal, to deal with the cars caught up in the queue behind the scene, to painstakingly investigate the scene so that if they need to charge someone for death by dangerous driving they have all the evidence, to make repairs to the road surface and sweep up glass, debris and oil, to get the recovery vehicles through the queues caused by the accident, THEN to remove two cars.

Lets face the truths, (1) the driving general public are getting more and more stupid (2) with my first point in mind the road is completely unfit for purpose.

No amount of fiddling and tweaking the existing road with signs, speed limits and calming will fix this. It is annoying to see predictable naïve comments about speed cameras as if speed is main cause of these accidents!

Police do your job and actively police these roads actively, why? because unfortunately because of my point (1) people are not able and cannot be trusted to use them wisely left to their own devices so a real deterrent is needed. Increase penalties for drivers who are found guilty of having caused these accidents and while you are at it Argus\Police it how about some follow up reporting about what the findings of these accidents are so we may all learn something from them.

Last but not least dual this road....

Well, firstly you can't spell, secondly you show little concern for the occupants of the vehicles and lastly, you can get to Drusilla's via Littlington. 1st left after Exceat Bridge on the A259.
We might as well stop caring about the A27, because it does seem to be turning into the Middle East. I've posted many a comment about practical measures to deal with this menace, because it is essentially a cultural one. The default response on here seems to be to show every sympathy and empathy going, while my calls for lower speed limits, traffic calming and enforcement are met by the usual screams of 'motorists are just cash cows', and the accompanying obligatory 100+ thumbs down. If this is you, I suggest that you take a good look in the mirror, because YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Over to you thumb downers.
The Middle east???? Jesus, what is wrong with some people that comment on this site? Get out from behind your keyboard mate, and get a grasp on reality, please!

Its a road, if people drive recklessly or speed or try dangerous overtaking, they will crash, like they always have on every road in the world.

It hardly represents the Middle East you simple minded fool.
Yay hay, the retarded, inbred, death-loving, Sussex scroaties have not disappointed. You don't seem to recognise a metaphor, so I might as well just type abuse. Your powers of expression and comprehension must be limited. I feel sorry for you.

I don't really care about the world's road network, because I only use the UK's roads, so I think it is pretty valid that I should care about traffic calming, speed limits and enforcement for a facility that I both use and pay taxes towards.

I don't care what the rest of the world gets up to. I only used the Middle East as a metaphor because it's been in the news a bit lately. If you don't recognise a metaphor, you might need to look it up.
Oh boy, you really are a bit 'special' aren't you!

My powers of expression and comprehension are limited? Whatttt?

OK, point taken that you don't care about the worlds road network, so allow me to try again... Its a UK ROAD, if people drive DANGEROUSLY (in the UK), or SPEED (in the UK), or try DANGEROUS OVERTAKING (in the UK), they will indeed be involved in a collision. Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.
I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them. I might come back to it later, because they are going to be building some new roads (including an upgraded A27?) to try to get re-elected.

I know that there are speed cameras, but these only police locations, and are not pro-active in dealing with bad behaviour, because some cheeky motorists will only slow down for the cameras, and speed up between them, which seems to cause these frequent collisions nowadays.
Which part of this road in particular do you feel is the most dangerous? How often do you use this stretch of road? (serious question)
The whole Beddingham to Polegate stretch is an issue, because it is a long distance trunk road (tired drivers?), with a 60mph speed limit, and a high risk of head-on collisions. There seem to be too many collisions on the A27, but those on this eastern stretch do seem to be more inclined to be fatal. I think the Government might just announce a dualling of this road in early December.

This still leaves issues with long stretches of dual-carriageway, because the A3 has been upgraded substantially the whole way from Portsmouth to the M25, but it is still a windy country road, and not a motorway, as many people seem to think.
The whole Beddingham to Polegate stretch, wow thats a whole 9.9 miles, tired drivers?

IMHO I genuinely think you are completely wrong on this, but thats what makes the world an interesting place, different opinions.

The way I see it, you can spend all the money in the world trying to make a road safe, but certain drivers will still take risks and cause collisions. The only way to eradicate accidents is close the road to all traffic.

I have been driving on that stretch of the A27 for 22 years, accident free, as I know the risks and alter my driving accordingly. Which as responsible drivers, I thought we were all supposed to.

You can only make a road safe if nobody uses it.
This part of the A27 from Polegate to Beddingham has always been dangerous and although many people have tried to get it upgraded nobody wants to know. So blame Central Govt for leaving us with a road the Saxons built originally.
This is a bit extreme. Traffic calming, lower speed limits and good enforcement can surely minimise (but never eliminate) risks; a bit like other things in life.

Don't embarrass yourself by posting ridiculous comments (too busy speeding thing). I believe you get so many thumbs down as your views lack common sense and practicality, not to mention the constant insults of Sussex people being inbreds, death loving retards.

When I was growing up, my mum always told me, treat people how you like to be treated. I think its a good time to offer you that same piece of advice...

Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.
I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them. I might come back to it later, because they are going to be building some new roads (including an upgraded A27?) to try to get re-elected.

I know that there are speed cameras, but these only police locations, and are not pro-active in dealing with bad behaviour, because some cheeky motorists will only slow down for the cameras, and speed up between them, which seems to cause these frequent collisions nowadays.
Which part of this road in particular do you feel is the most dangerous? How often do you use this stretch of road? (serious question)
I use Polegate to Beddingham quite often, but not as much as I used to
Why have I got all these 'thumbs down' just for responding with a simple line to clarify someone's curiosity? I'm not even giving an opinion here. I guess that the sort of people that we're talking about can't articulate much of anything (too busy speeding), so they click 'thumbs down' over nothing.
Don't embarrass yourself by posting ridiculous comments (too busy speeding thing). I believe you get so many thumbs down as your views lack common sense and practicality, not to mention the constant insults of Sussex people being inbreds, death loving retards.

When I was growing up, my mum always told me, treat people how you like to be treated. I think its a good time to offer you that same piece of advice...
This is really getting tied up in knots. I only typed that abuse once, and have not kept repeating it. I wasn't typing abuse per se. It was only tongue in cheek; I was saying 'if you don't understand a metaphor, you might understand abuse instead'. Pretty straightforward I'd have thought, but it seemed to pass you by.

As for my 'too busy speeding' jibe, I can't help but feel that there are slightly onomatopoeic similarities between someone that can't control their foot on the gas pedal and someone that can't control their mouse clicks. You're jumping the gun about my views lacking common sense and practicality; my point is this; why have people bothered to give me 'thumbs down', WHERE I HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN GIVING AN OPINION? (sorry for the emphasis, but some things seem to pass you by).

Well, firstly you can't spell, secondly you show little concern for the occupants of the vehicles and lastly, you can get to Drusilla's via Littlington. 1st left after Exceat Bridge on the A259.
We might as well stop caring about the A27, because it does seem to be turning into the Middle East. I've posted many a comment about practical measures to deal with this menace, because it is essentially a cultural one. The default response on here seems to be to show every sympathy and empathy going, while my calls for lower speed limits, traffic calming and enforcement are met by the usual screams of 'motorists are just cash cows', and the accompanying obligatory 100+ thumbs down. If this is you, I suggest that you take a good look in the mirror, because YOU ARE THE PROBLEM. Over to you thumb downers.
The Middle east???? Jesus, what is wrong with some people that comment on this site? Get out from behind your keyboard mate, and get a grasp on reality, please!

Its a road, if people drive recklessly or speed or try dangerous overtaking, they will crash, like they always have on every road in the world.

It hardly represents the Middle East you simple minded fool.
Yay hay, the retarded, inbred, death-loving, Sussex scroaties have not disappointed. You don't seem to recognise a metaphor, so I might as well just type abuse. Your powers of expression and comprehension must be limited. I feel sorry for you.

I don't really care about the world's road network, because I only use the UK's roads, so I think it is pretty valid that I should care about traffic calming, speed limits and enforcement for a facility that I both use and pay taxes towards.

I don't care what the rest of the world gets up to. I only used the Middle East as a metaphor because it's been in the news a bit lately. If you don't recognise a metaphor, you might need to look it up.
Oh boy, you really are a bit 'special' aren't you!

My powers of expression and comprehension are limited? Whatttt?

OK, point taken that you don't care about the worlds road network, so allow me to try again... Its a UK ROAD, if people drive DANGEROUSLY (in the UK), or SPEED (in the UK), or try DANGEROUS OVERTAKING (in the UK), they will indeed be involved in a collision. Unless I am very much mistaken, there is already a speed limit in place on that road, is there not? There is also ample signage alerting drivers of sharp bends, blind summits and dips in road.

Not sure how my observation makes me a Sussex Scroatie, or an inbred, or retarded or death loving?

I will however say it again, you come across superbly as a simple minded fool. I would hurl insults back, but, to be honest, you're really not worth the effort.
I ought to congratulate you on identifying the issues with people driving and overtaking dangerously. You identify that there are speed limits, but these seem to be set too high for this road, and are not obeyed in any case.

I don't think that the Police do a good job with pro-active enforcement; they just seem to turn up afterwards to pick up the pieces and apportion blame for insurance purposes (they might also charge someone occasionally). I've sent emails about this to the Police before, and they sent me a response blaming 'Government cuts', which implied that I ought to contact my MP instead. I therefore contacted my MP, and she responded with details of historic successes against drink driving, which I felt was not insignificant, but not really acknowledging the issues as I understand them.

Which part of this road in particular do you feel is the most dangerous? How often do you use this stretch of road? (serious question)

Then what on earth are they doing reading it? I'm a give and take sort of person when it comes to chatter, but I do draw the line where those differences potentially make the difference between life and death (motoring, drugs, probably a few other things as well).
